HM the King: Morocco's Decision to Return to African Institutional Family Does Not Mean Relinquishing Legitimate Rights on its Sahara

Tetouan (North) – The decision of Morocco to return to its African institutional family does not mean that the Kingdom will relinquish its legitimate rights on its Sahara, HM King Mohammed VI said in a speech to the Nation, on the occasion of the 17th anniversary of the Throne Day.

The decision of Morocco to return to its African institutional family does not mean that the Kingdom will relinquish its legitimate rights, nor recognize a pseudo entity lacking the basic elements of sovereignty which was imposed on the African Union, in flagrant violation of the latter’s charter, HM the King noted.

The Sovereign underlined that Morocco’s return to "its natural place reflects our keenness to continue defending our interests from within the African Union and to enhance cooperation with our partners, at the bilateral and regional levels." 

This return will also open up new prospects for Morocco, mainly in East and Equatorial Africa, and consolidate the country’s position as a player with regard to the continent’s security, stability, human development and solidarity, HM the King said.

The Sovereign took this opportunity to thank all African sister nations for supporting Morocco in defending its territorial unity and for responding positively to its decision to return to its institutional family, “particularly leaders of the 28 states which have signed the statement, as well as those who have contributed to the initiative.”

HM the King also expressed His gratitude and esteem to the Republic of Rwanda, which hosted the summit, and to its president, His Excellency Mr. Paul Kagamé, for their support and collaboration.

In another vein, the Sovereign noted that in addition to being open to major economic and political spaces, such as Russia, China and India, “we remain committed to consolidating our strategic partnership with our French and Spanish allies.” 

“We also work with the European Union to develop our traditional partnership on solid bases,” HM the King added.

“This diversification of partnerships is based on mutual esteem and the commitment to boost win-win cooperation, as illustrated by the strategic agreements signed in vital sectors, such as energy, infrastructure, agriculture, the fight against terrorism, military cooperation, etc,” HM the King noted.

Indeed, the Sovereign went on, Morocco is a key partner in the fight against terrorism, both at the level of security cooperation, with a number of sister and friendly nations, and through its unique approach to managing the country’s religious affairs. This position allowed Morocco to co-chair, with the Netherlands, the Global Counterterrorism Forum.

“Our country is also actively involved in international efforts to fight climate change and, in November, is hosting the 22nd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change,” the Sovereign added.

As a major player in triangular cooperation, Morocco has also placed development issues, particularly in Africa, at the top of its political agenda, HM the King stressed.
