The President of the Association of the Regions of Morocco (ARM) and the Regional Council of Guelmim-Oued Noun, Mbarka Bouaida, emphasized that the State of Israel’s acknowledgment of Morocco’s sovereignty over the Sahara was a “just and historic” decision that validated “the justice of the national question.”
This decision, she stated in a statement to MAP, “comes on top of all the praise that Morocco has gained in recent years, owing to the high leadership of HM King Mohammed VI.
She also believed that this Israeli recognition will undoubtedly have favorable effects on the global scene because, as she noted, the Israeli Prime Minister has promised that all relevant acts and documents of the Israeli government pertaining to this decision will be harmonized and forwarded to the United Nations and all organizations of which Israel is a member.
In a letter, His Excellency Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of the State of Israel, brought to His Majesty King Mohammed VI’s Very High Attention the State of Israel’s decision to “recognize the sovereignty of Morocco over the territory of Western Sahara.” This was revealed in a statement released by the Royal Office today.
Regarding this, the Israeli Prime Minister said that his nation’s viewpoint “will be reflected in all relevant acts and documents of the Israeli Government.”
He further stressed that the decision “will be communicated to the United Nations, to regional and international organizations of which Israel is a member, and to all countries with which Israel maintains diplomatic relations.”
The Israeli Prime Minister wrote to the Sovereign to let him know that Israel is seriously taking into consideration “the opening of a consulate in the city of Dakhla” as part of carrying out this State decision.
