The Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Peter Szijjarto, reiterated his country’s position in support of the Western Sahara autonomy plan proposed by Morocco.
The Hungarian Minister expressed this position during a press conference following his discussions with the Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita.
“We are fully convinced that the autonomy plan presented by Morocco gives hope for finding a solution to this conflict by respecting the resolutions of the United Nations,” highlighting that the issues of territorial integrity and respect for the sovereignty of states “are of special importance” to his country.
The Hungarian minister stressed that his country supports the autonomy plan in international bodies, pointing in particular to the position that Hungary recently expressed to the European Court of Appeal on this issue.
Szijjarto added that his country’s position in support of the autonomy initiative will remain steadfast.
Hungary’s top diplomat pointed out that the Kingdom has a responsible policy in the fight against irregular migration.
Szijjarto also emphasized Morocco’s clear and firm stance against terrorism, which is one of the reasons for illegal migration.
Pointing out that stability and peace in Africa depend on peace and security in Europe, the Hungarian minister stressed the importance of Morocco as a key partner of the European Union in these areas.
He also expressed Hungary’s thanks to Morocco for its efforts to combat irregular migratory flows.
