Sahara: Several countries reaffirm their support for a mutually acceptable political solution
During the regional seminar of the Committee of 24 (C-24) for the Caribbean, which is being conducted in Dominica, a number of countries have expressed their support for the UN-sponsored political process aimed at resolving the regional conflict over the Moroccan Sahara.
While praising Morocco’s efforts, Chile’s delegate underlined his country’s support for a “peaceful solution, using the diplomatic resolution procedures established by the United Nations,” in order to put an end to the long-running conflict.
Syria, for its part, argued in front of the C-24 members for diplomacy and discussion as a basis for resolving the conflict.
“We truly hope that all parties to this dispute participate in constructive discussions to establish a reasonable and permanent settlement,” the Syrian representative said, adding that his nation supports UN efforts to find a mutually acceptable political solution to the Sahara issue.
In a similar spirit, Indonesia underlined its support for the UN efforts to establish a “fair, durable, and mutually acceptable political settlement” to the Sahara conflict, particularly under the auspices of the Secretary-General.
Indonesia also backs the Security Council’s demands for a “realistic, attainable, and long-term solution to this situation” in its resolutions.
The C24 regional meeting for the Caribbean is taking place in the backdrop of the Kingdom’s diplomatic victories, which have sanctified the Moroccan character of the Sahara.
These include the United States’ acknowledgment of Morocco’s complete sovereignty over its southern regions, as well as the creation of 24 general consulates in Laâyoune and Dakhla.
The UN meeting also comes just a few months after the Royal Armed Forces’ nonviolent intervention, which made it possible to secure the free movement of persons and commodities in Guergarate once and for all.
