Sahara: Congolese President Félix Antoine Tshisekedi Expresses Solidarity with Morocco

President of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Félix Antoine Tshisekedi, has expressed solidarity with the Kingdom of Morocco with regard to its international commitments in the area of El Guerguarat.

In a letter sent to His Majesty King Mohammed VI, president Tshisekedi, who highlighted the friendly relations between the two countries, described as “unacceptable” the situation that has prevailed in the area of El Guerguarat following the illegal intrusion of “polisario” militias into this area where they have carried out acts of banditry preventing the movement of people and goods and continuously harassing MINURSO military observers.

Mr. Tshisekedi stressed that he shares the view that the international community, through the United Nations “the Secretary-General of which you had to refer the issue to, will do everything possible to promptly and definitively remedy this situation in the best interests of respect for the status of this buffer zone, the free movement and preservation of the dignity of Moroccans.”
