Azerbaijan has reiterated its “permanent and unwavering” support for the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Morocco over its Sahara and its territorial integrity.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita, and his Azerbaijani colleague, Jeyhun Bayramov, co-chaired the Joint Cooperation Commission’s second session on Monday in Rabat, where this stance was presented.
The Azerbaijani side stated in the meeting minutes that it is committed to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Kingdom and that it supports the UN and the Secretary-General’s Personal Envoy in their efforts to find a just and lasting political solution to the Sahara issue. These efforts are based on the pertinent resolutions of the UN Security Council, most notably Resolution 2703, the Moroccan Autonomy Plan, and the sincere and legitimate efforts being made by Morocco to end this fabricated conflict.
The document claims that Morocco and Azerbaijan’s relations have achieved a pinnacle of excellence, marked by mutual respect, trust, solidarity, and support for each other on matters of critical importance to the two friendly nations.
The same source states that President Ilham Aliyev and His Majesty King Mohammed VI are especially keen to expand and enhance these ties for the prosperity and welfare of the peoples of Azerbaijan and Morocco.
