New York – The Moroccan-Jewish community of Toronto, Canada celebrates the 40th Anniversary of the Green March, one of the important events in Morocco’s recent history, and reaffirms its attachment to Morocco’s territorial integrity.
“The Sahara has been, is and will always be Moroccan,” the President of the Moroccan-Jewish community of Toronto (CJMT), Simon Keslassy, said in a statement according to Maghreb Arab Press (MAP).
The Sahara region, “is an integral and indivisible part of the territorial integrity of the Kingdom,” Keslassy stressed, stressing that the Green March celebration is a “key event for all Moroccans.”
He went on to add that the anniversary of the Green March recalls with pride and patriotic commitment the unity of Moroccan people of all faiths and walks of life to defend the unity of their country.
Moroccans came together as one to regain a region “so dear to the hearts of all” by means of of a peaceful and civilized march – a one-of-a-kind demonstration in the modern world, Keslassy said.
The anniversary of the Green March also highlights “the tireless efforts of our Sovereign, His Majesty King Mohammed VI, for development and progress in all regions of Morocco,” he noted.
He also highlighted the unprecedented progress Morocco has achieved in all areas, especially in its southern provinces to benefit their people.
Moroccan-Jews in Canada have worked together in support of the many development projects initiated by King Mohammed VI across the Kingdom and the Moroccan Sahara, he stressed.
“Although the Atlantic separates us from Morocco, our souls and hearts will be present to celebrate with our compatriots the 40th Anniversary of this great epic that will remain forever engraved in golden letters in the history of mankind” he said on behalf of the Moroccan-Jewish community of Toronto.
Moroccan-Jews in Canada remain attached to their native Morocco and united under the King to end the maneuvers and conspiracies of the enemies of the Kingdom’s territorial integrity and its national sovereignty, the statement read.
It is imperative to put an end to the “artificial” conflict of the Sahara, which has lasted too long, in defense of “relevant, credible and realistic initiatives”, Keslassy concluded.
