Brussels: The Minister of Foreign Affairs and African Co-operation and Moroccans living abroad, Nasser Borita, has called on the European Union to leave its comfort zone and support the positive dynamic taking place in the Moroccan Sahara.
In response to a question from Europe agency about the decision of the United States of America to recognize Morocco’s sovereignty over its deserts, the minister stressed that this is a “natural evolution of the American position, which since 2007 considers that the Moroccan autonomy initiative is a serious and realistic basis for a final solution to this regional dispute,” adding that “when we say autonomy, I don’t think there is autonomy outside sovereignty.”
“Morocco is ready to commit to such a series, under the auspices of the United Nations, to find a solution to the Sahara issue within the framework of its autonomy initiative,” he said.
“This is not an isolated situation, but a trend at the level of the international community,” the minister said.
In this context, Mr. Borita called on the European Union to leave its comfort zone.
“It is enough for Europe to get out of its comfort zone and support this international trend,” he said, noting that “the process has taken its place for years” and today “there is a trend that is emerging, which is what the EU should adopt.”
In the same context, the minister stressed that Europe needs a stable and secure sahel and desert region, noting that “these wishes can remain rigid in the absence of commitment”.
“Today, the train will be launched, will Europe remain negative or will it contribute to this dynamic?” asked Mr. Borita.
