  Summary
Commemorates the return of the Oued Eddahab region to Morocco from Mauritania in 1979

On Monday August 14th 1979, tribal leaders and clerics from Oued Ed-Dahab, visited Rabat, the Kingdom's capital to give the late King Hassan II their oath of allegiance. 

Despite this oath, the region of Western Sahara remains a disputed region with the United Nations and most countries not recognising Morocco's claim to sovereignty of the region.
