Moroccan Sahara: Germany Reiterates Support for Autonomy Plan as Serious and Credible Effort of Morocco and ‘Very Good Basis’ for Resolving Dispute over Sahara

On Thursday, Germany confirmed its support for the Moroccan autonomy proposal for the Sahara, which was first presented in 2007. Germany described the plan as a “very good basis for a solution accepted by the parties” and a “serious and credible” attempt by the Kingdom.

The head of German diplomacy, Annalena Baerbock, reiterated Germany’s “long-standing support for the UN-led process for a realistic, pragmatic, lasting, and mutually acceptable political solution” at the conclusion of her meeting with Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita, on a working visit to Germany.

The relevant UN Security Council resolutions, which have noted the role and responsibility of the parties in the search for a practical, long-lasting, compromise-based political solution, were supported once again by the two ministers, who also reiterated their shared position in favor of the “exclusivity” of the UN in the political process.

The two nations also reiterated their support for Staffan de Mistura, the UN Secretary-General’s personal envoy, and his efforts to advance the political process in accordance with the pertinent UN Security Council resolutions.
