Franco-Moroccans called on France, in an initiative promoting unity, to recognize Moroccan sovereignty over its southern provinces.

“We ask with confidence, with faith, with hope for France to recognize Moroccan sovereignty over the Sahara”,

indicate a number of Franco-Moroccans in a letter, through which the main signatories wish to achieve the territorial unity of Morocco and unity of views between Morocco and France.

“It is because this is fair, legitimate and because it is the meaning of the future”,

states the letter, signed by Moustapha Hadji and Ahmed Ghayet, joined by twenty other Franco-Moroccans.

“We are the children of an addition, we will never be the children of a subtraction and we do not accept that people want to make us those of a division”, say the actors of this initiative.

“We are an opportunity, we are an asset, we are a bridge: rich in a dual culture, a positive diversity, tributaries from both sides of the Mediterranean, we are bearers of mixed values, of innovative perspectives, hope… of Peace!”, they underline in their letter, arguing, “we love France and we love Morocco, we are the fruit of human, geographical and historical mixing and we want to put it at the service of both countries”, they argue.

In this regard, they expressed their desire to “take advantage of this very specific faculty (…) to ensure that France – which has always found Morocco at its side in times of need, as history shows – takes the long awaited step”.

“Our position allows us – without betraying or denying anything of what we are – to carry out this positive, constructive, innovative approach”, they point out, noting that it allows them to clearly expose the major role they can play and which they have become more aware of.

“Let no one distort or divert our initiative. It comes from heart and reason and its outcome will be for us, for Morocco and for France, another milestone added, on the road towards a common course which is already so rich”, conclude the signatories.
