Rabat- The UK’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Boris Johnson, has saluted Morocco’s efforts to find a fair solution to the Western Sahara issue.
Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita met Johnson in the first strategic dialogue between Morocco and the UK on Thursday in London.
Johnson deemed Morocco’s approach to the Western Sahara conflict “serious and credible,” joining the list of several countries that expressed the same view, such as Mali, Chile, France, Azerbaijan, and the US, in addition to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
Morocco has proposed an autonomy plan which seeks to find a fair solution to the issue of Western Sahara.
According to Bourita, the Sahara region is part of the kingdom’s ongoing efforts to build a democratic and modern society based on the rule of law; individual, collective, and economic freedoms; and social development.
During the meeting, the two foreign ministers discussed terrorism, trade and investment potential, culture, and sports. The meeting was attended by senior officials of both countries.
The first Morocco-UK strategic dialogue aimed to strengthen the bilateral relations between the two kingdoms on a cultural, educational, economic, and political level.
