Before answering the question, the Moroccan ambassador found reminded the American reporter on which side he stands vis-à-vis the conflict, using some figures to support his statement.
“This question you have just asked me is the 225th you have put about Morocco in one year. More than that, you wrote 150 articles about Morocco,” Omar Hilale said.
The ambassador went on to say, “I am not complaining about this. But you never address questions to the Polisario, Algeria or Venezuela.”
While the Inner City Press reporter attempted to interrupt the Moroccan representative, Omar Hilale retorted, “Now that the world knows who you are and whom you are targeting, I will answer your question.”
