U.S. Reiterates Support for Autonomy Plan As Serious, Credible and Realistic Solution

Rabat – The U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs, Michele Sison, reiterated on Wednesday in Rabat the support of the United States to the Moroccan autonomy plan as a serious, credible and realistic solution to the dispute over the Sahara.

Following her discussions with Nasser Bourita, Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates, Sison stated at a press conference that the United States continues to view the autonomy plan put out by Morocco as serious, credible, and practical.

The U.S. official continued that the country’s top aim is to back a legitimate process that would end the Sahara dispute in dignity and permanently and with the backing of the international community.

She claimed the meeting’s main topic was maintaining American support for Staffan de Mistura in his capacity as the UN Secretary-special General’s representative for the Sahara.

Additionally, she added, the conversations focused on “our strong support” for MINURSO’s peacekeeping initiatives and how crucial they were to maintaining the framework for the UN-sponsored peace process.
