Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Residing Abroad, Nasser Bourita, during a joint conference with Minister of Foreign Affairs and Senegalese Abroad, Aïssata Tall Sall, at the occasion of the opening by the Republic of Senegal of a consulate general in Dakhla, this Monday called on the UN Security Council to determine the person responsible for the violation of the ceasefire and the blocking of the political process to find a solution to the conflict around the Moroccan Sahara.
” The Security Council must determine, in all objectivity, who violates the ceasefire on a daily basis and who has proclaimed its end, on the one hand, and on the other, who is committed to this ceasefire (in reference to Morocco) and who announced it at the highest level by HM the King Said Bourita. And to add, ” This is the time for clarity. These ambivalences in terms of ceasefire, political process, support for MINURSO and support for UN exclusivity must be raised by the Security Council. », Recalling that today, with the announcement of the opening of two consulates, the number of consulates general in the southern provinces stands at 21.
The minister further underlined that Morocco does not oppose the appointment of a Personal Envoy of the UN Secretary General, noting that the Kingdom has responded favorably to the latest proposal on this subject. ” Who is hindering the process of appointing a Personal Envoy? He asked himself. ” It is necessary to define the responsibilities, to determine who plays a constructive role, who works seriously and demonstrates clarity in the positions, and who manipulates, maneuvers and contradicts himself between word and deed? Who works under the aegis of the United Nations and who seeks to involve other organizations, which do not want it, in the UN process ? “, He noted, considering that” these contradictions must end ”. And to ask yourself ” If the file is in the hands of the United Nations, which then tries to involve the African Union “.
But that’s not all, once again, the Kingdom has shown an outstretched hand to Algeria. ” If the real party, which is Algeria, shows seriousness, then Morocco is willing, but if it is a matter of maneuver and manipulation, the Kingdom will continue its process of reaffirming the Moroccanness of the Sahara. “, He maintained.
Nasser Bourita observed that “ anyone who wants to sit down at the table to find a solution within the framework of the autonomy plan is welcome … Otherwise, let him continue to spread chicanery and ambivalence “, Ensuring that” Morocco will continue its serious action to reaffirm the Moroccan character of the Sahara on the ground and through diplomacy, and not through delusions and lies “. ” The Moroccan character of the Sahara is a continuous and irreversible process », He insisted. Nasser Bourita concluded that Morocco considers that what has been achieved, under the leadership of King Mohammed VI, at the diplomatic level and on the ground are “dhe gains that must be invested in finding a solution, and it is for this reason that the Kingdom has worked for the resolution of this conflict within the sole framework of the autonomy plan “.
So, there is no clearer! Nasser Bourita, tends once again, on behalf of the Kingdom, the pole to Algeria by affirming to accept direct negotiations with “the real stakeholder”, Algeria in this case. The latter through the voice of his MAE, Sabri Boukadoum, claims it all the way and at the top of his lungs to whoever wants to hear it of course. Morocco is ready, what about the stakeholder? ” Only negotiations with Algiers count, because the real part of the conflict is Algeria », Underlined Nasser Bourita. According to him, the all-out mobilization of the Algerian regime ” proves, every day, that it is directly involved in this conflict, because it shelters, finances and mobilizes », Separatists against the territorial integrity of Morocco.
In addition, Sabri Boukadoum by evoking human rights, ventured on slippery ground. Nasser Bourita called these words “disinformation” before using irony, “ Is Algiers in a position to talk about human rights? At least a third of the reports from UN missions mentioned only this subject in Algeria. It is not for Algiers to talk about it. This country is the bottom of the pack “. Let us follow other looks as the allusion makes us think of the Algerian people who, every day that God makes, suffers martyrdom, it is the case to say it and is in prey, Hirak and other movements oblige, to the repression, arrests, torture, gratuitous convictions contrary to equity, rights and justice as well as other acts such as sexual assault on minors in state establishments, as recently in a police station in Alger.
