The spokesperson of the United Nations Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric, has once again welcomed Morocco’s dialogue offer to Algeria.
Rabat – In a press conference on Thursday, the spokesperson said, “I have been asked earlier today about recent press reports regarding the relations between Algeria and Morocco.”
He noted that the UN always has been “very supportive of increased dialogue between Algeria and Morocco, whose relationship is very important to the region.”
It is the second time the United Nations has supported Morocco’s dialogue initiative offered to Algeria by King Mohammed VI on November 6. In his speech on the 43rd anniversary of the Green March, King Mohammed VI said that the abnormal diplomatic ties should be resolved through a frank and direct dialogue with Algeria.
“I should like to stress that Morocco is willing to consider the proposals or initiatives Algeria may want to offer in this regard so as to break the stalemate in the relations between the two neighbors and sister nations,” said the King.
Following the King’s speech, Dujarric said that the Secretary-General of the UN, Antonio Guterres, “has always been very supportive of increased dialogue between Algeria and Morocco.”
Guterres also welcomed King Mohammed VI’s support for the UN-led political process in Western Sahara.
Guterres also expressed hope for the Geneva roundtable, which will convene all parties to the conflict December 5-6 for talks.
The UN Security Council also highly welcomed the roundtable.
