Sahara issue: Autonomy Proposal under Moroccan Sovereignty is the 'Best Compromise,' MEPs



Brussels - Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) stressed the importance of Morocco's autonomy proposal to grant broad autonomy to the Sahara region under Moroccan sovereignty, underlining that this initiative is the ''best acceptable compromise" to settle the conflict.



In a letter addressed to European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, following their visit to Morocco's southern provinces, the MEPs stressed that the Moroccan proposal is meant to allow the Sahrawis to be "democratically elected to lead their local government," which will guarantee, according to them, "the legitimacy of the people's representatives and the effective management of borders in the region, which is crucial for collective security."

Calling on the EU to use its "diplomatic and economic clout to take a strong initiative in this matter," the MEPs said that Europe is the "major partner" of Morocco and the Maghreb, either in security or development.

''We are convinced that the European diplomacy should play a leading role in contributing to peace and stability" in this region, they added.

MEPs Gilles Pargneaux, Dominique Riquet and Younous Omarjee attracted the attention of the head of the European diplomacy on the situation in the region and its repercussions for Europe.

Tackling their recent visit to Morocco's southern provinces, the MEPs highlighted the "impressive" economic and social development in the Sahara, notably in Laayoune, Smara, Dakhla and Boujdour, as well as the freedom of movement and expression of NGOs active in the region.
