Moroccan Sahara: Austria Considers Autonomy Plan as Serious and Credible Basis for Solution

Rabat – Austria considers the autonomy plan, presented by Morocco in 2007, as a basis for a solution to the dispute over the Moroccan Sahara, agreed upon by all the parties, according to the joint declaration adopted at the end of the meeting, Tuesday in Rabat, between the Head of Government, Aziz Akhannouch, and the Federal Chancellor of Austria, Karl Nehammer.

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.

When Mohamed Ben Abdelmalek delivered his credentials to HM the Emperor Joseph II on February 28, 1783, the two nations established diplomatic ties. This visit is a part of the celebration of the 240th anniversary of that event, which will take place on February 28, 2023.
