Rabat – King Mohammed VI has informed United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres of his condemnation of the illegal actions carried out by the Polisario Front in Western Sahara buffer zones.
According to Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani, the King has expressed his concerns over Polisario’s escalation, and has called for immediate UN intervention.
El Othmani made his statement on Monday in a meeting convening trade unions, secretaries-general, and representatives of all political parties. The meeting aimed at informing all officials of the “dangerous development” faced by the region due to the continuous presence of separatists.
El Othmani echoed a statement made by officials during Sunday’s meeting on Western Sahara, that Morocco will never allow changes in the legal and historical status of the Western Sahara buffer zones.
Subsequently, the Moroccan official urged the trade unions and members of his cabinet to support comprehensive mobilization on the issue of territorial integrity. He added that Morocco is supported by the security council resolutions, which stress the need to persevere the buffer zone.
El Othmani said that his cabinet is taking the issue seriously and will not allow the Polisario to find a “foothold” in the buffer zone.
During the meeting, the head of government also recalled Morocco’s Autonomy Plan, emphasizing that it is the “most effective” solution to the territorial dispute.
He also discussed Morocco’s continental achievements, including its return to the African Union and its membership in the AU’s Peace and Security Council.
According to El Othmani, the Polisario is losing its visibility and its proposals have been refused internationally.
The meeting participants expressed their full readiness to engage in all initiatives aimed at “defending Morocco’s territorial integrity,” reiterating their “determination to counter all maneuvers that could undermine it.”
