HM the King: 2016, 'Year of Determination' for Morocco's Territorial Integrity

Tetouan (North) - HM King Mohammed VI on Saturday underlined that 2016 has been a "year of determination" for Morocco as far as its territorial integrity is concerned.

"If some are trying to make 2016 a “year of decision”, for Morocco it is a “year of determination” as far as our territorial integrity is concerned", HM the king stressed in a speech to the nation on the occasion of the 17th anniversary of the Throne Day.

"Convinced that ours is a just cause, with firm determination, we have faced the fallacious statements and irresponsible behavior related to the management of the Moroccan Sahara issue and taken the necessary measures, dictated by the circumstances, to put an end to these serious deviations", the Sovereign pointed out.

Pledging to continue defending rights and take the required measures to counter any future deviations, the Monarch stressed that "we will not give in to any kind of pressure, nor any blackmail attempts regarding the sacred cause of all Moroccans". 

Morocco will however remain open and ever ready to engage in constructive dialogue in order to find a final political settlement to this artificial dispute, HM the King said.

In this regard, the Sovereign called again for continued vigilance and mobilization to counter the maneuvers of Morocco's opponents, who are infuriated by the development and progress witnessed in the Moroccan Sahara.

"All conspiracies, overt or hidden, will not undermine our determination to go on with the implementation of our southern provinces development model", the Sovereign stressed.

Indeed, the development projects launched in the region, along with the opportunity for the populations’ effective involvement in managing their affairs, thanks to the advanced regionalization scheme, will transform the Sahara into an integrated economic pole that will allow it to play its historic role as a hub and an exchange platform between Morocco and the rest of Africa, as well as countries of the North, the Monarch pointed out. 

HM the King noted that Morocco’s foreign policy is based on words and action, be it when defending the cause of the Moroccan Sahara, diversifying partnerships or addressing current international issues and problems.

The Sovereign also affirmed that concern with citizens’ issues inside Morocco is only matched by the importance I attach to the issues of the members of our community abroad.

Deeply valuing their contribution to their country’s development and their involvement in upholding its causes, the Monarch voiced His pride of their attachment to their country and of the increasing number of those visiting their families back home every year, despite the long, tiring journeys they have to undertake and all the difficulties they have to overcome.

In this regard, HM the King recalled having stressed the need to improve the services provided to them and noted the procedures adopted to serve this purpose, calling for more dedication and stronger commitment on the part of consuls and civil servants in charge of this community’s affairs.
