New York - Perhaps what is most striking in the analysis of Morocco’s efforts in recent years to defend its position on the Western Sahara at the global level is the quasi-absence of parliamentary and partisan diplomacy in defending and promoting the Moroccan autonomy plan as a solution to the conflict. An example of the failure of Moroccan parliamentary diplomacy is the recent recognition of Chilean parliament of the so-called Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR).
