Sahara: Morocco remains resolutely committed to political process under exclusive aegis of UN

Morocco remains resolutely and earnestly committed to the political process (on the Sahara), under the exclusive aegis of the United Nations Organization, said King Mohammed VI in the speech he delivered Monday evening on the occasion of Throne Day.

The Sovereign insisted that Morocco is also clear in terms of its fundamental convictions: the way to achieve the desired settlement can be none other than through Moroccan full sovereignty and within the framework of the autonomy initiative.

The gains achieved by Morocco at the United Nations and at African and European levels are reason for national pride, the King said, stressing however the need “to remain mobilized across the board to consolidate these achievements and face up to the plots of our adversaries.”

After he underlined that the current security and development challenges cannot be tackled by any country on its own, he said “with that in mind, I wish to reaffirm our sincere commitment to the policy of the outstretched hand towards our Algerian brothers, out of loyalty to the bonds rooted in brotherhood, religion, language and neighborliness that have always existed between the peoples of the two sister nations.”
