The UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, expressed, on Tuesday, his “gratitude for the support” of King Mohammed VI to UN efforts to find a solution to the regional dispute over the Moroccan Sahara.
“The Secretary-General expressed gratitude for the support of His Majesty and the Government of Morocco to United Nations efforts to broker a solution” to the dispute over the Moroccan Sahara, said a statement issued following a meeting at UN Headquarters in New York between Ban and Taib Fassi Fihri, advisor to HM the King.
