H.M king Mohammed VI: Latest Security Council resolutions have laid to rest unrealistic and outdated proposals
The countries which opened consulates in Laayoune and Dakhla are “explicitly and unequivocally recognizing the Moroccanness of the Sahara”
King Mohammed VI, in his speech today on the Green March anniversary, affirmed that recent years have witnessed tangible developments on several levels. At the level of the United Nations, ” the recent decisions of the Security Council have laid to rest outdated and unrealistic approaches and proposals”. The UN decisions, adds the king, also insist on “the effective participation of the real parties concerned in this regional conflict” and have “irreversibly endorsed the political solution based on realism and consensus as the path forward”. This policy, says the king, goes in line with the Moroccan Autonomy Initiative “backed by the Security Council and the influential powers as the sole normal course of action for the settlement of this dispute”.
At the level of the African Union, the king affirmed that Morocco’s return to its African home led this organization to freeing itself from the “manipulations it had been subjected to for years”. This pan-African organization, added the king, has adopted a “a constructive stance, which consists in providing, through the UN Secretary-General and the Security Council, full support to the United Nations Organization as the sole institution in charge.
On the legal/diplomatic front, the king asserted that the many sister countries which have opened general consulates in the cities of Laayoune and Dakhla, are “explicitly and unequivocally recognizing the Moroccanness of the Sahara” and “attesting to the security, stability and prosperity enjoyed by the inhabitants of our southern provinces”.
The Monarch, in addition, expressed his confidence that the UN and MINURSO will keep carrying out their duties in terms of preserving the ceasefire in the region.
