Location of Non-Jews in Yemos HaMoshiach

In a sicha of Simchas Torah, Lamed Vov, the Rebbe says:

Quote:
Not only will the Jews seek the Word of G-d, but the non-Jews will as well, as it is written, “And numerous nations will go and say, ‘Come, and let us arise to the mountain of the L-rd, to the house of the G–d of Jacob.”[1] After the non-Jews come on a pilgrimage they will not return to their places in Africa or Asafmia, and remain as before. They will remain there [in Jerusalem] in order to learn from the King Messiah, as it is written, “and He will teach us His ways, and we will walk in His paths.”
[1] Isaiah, 2:3. Micah, 4:2.

I thought non-Jews aren't supposed to live in Eretz Yisroel, because it doesn't belong to them? How is it that all the goyim will live in Eretz Yisroel when Moshiach comes? And the whole of Chutz L'Aretz will become one big ghost town?!

If the tachlis of the creation of goyim is losheves yetzoro, how is it that that will all end when Moshiach comes? I'd have though the opposite: when Moshiach comes they'll devote themselves to losheves yetzoro more than ever before. But how can they do that if they're not even there?
