Moroccan Sahara: Austria Considers Autonomy Plan as Serious and Credible Basis for Solution
Morocco’s efforts have been recognized as serious and credible in this context by Austria.
In a joint declaration, the two countries affirmed their support for Staffan de Mistura, the UN Secretary-Personal General’s Envoy for the Sahara, and his efforts to continue the political process aimed at reaching “a just, lasting, and mutually acceptable political solution,” in accordance with relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the aims and principles set out in the UN Charter.
In this context, Morocco applauded Austria’s determination to continue providing vital assistance to MINURSO.
The Austrian Federal Chancellor Karl Nehammer conducted an official visit to Morocco on February 27 and 28, at the request of the country’s head of state, Aziz Akhannouch.
