Rabat – The Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned Moroccan Ambassador to Algeria on Wednesday, to condemn Morocco’s Foreign Affairs Minister’s statement in which he said that Hezbollah has provided military training and weapons to the Polisario through Algeria.
Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita announced Morocco’s decision to cut ties with Iran on Tuesday, emphasizing that Hezbollah military officers have traveled to Tindouf camps in Algeria to train military leaders of the separatist Polisario Front to use SAM-9 and anti-aircraft missiles.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Morocco has presented detailed evidence to Iran “on the role of Hezbollah, and the involvement of the Iranian embassy in Algiers in the military training, arms delivery, and training for urban guerrilla operations.”
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Morocco has historically proven that it takes its positions independently in all regional and international crises. Furthermore, all stances “correspond to its principles and respond to its own assessment.”
On Tuesday, the Iranian embassy in Algiers rejected Morocco’s accusations, indicating that Iran supports the Polisario Front, according to Iran’s news agency IRNA.
