More than 100 countries, including 30 African, support Morocco’s autonomy initiative for the peaceful and lasting settlement of this conflict created by Algeria to destabilize the Kingdom», recalled this expert in geopolitics in an interview with Le360.

This specialist in conflicts in the Sahel and West Africa reacted after Nasser Bourita, Minister of Foreign Affairs, expressed the same wish last week for the Algerian junta to achieve “the importance of the Moroccan initiative» to put an end to this conflict, under the aegis of the UN. This regional conflict has only “too hard», according to Nasser Bourita who spoke at the end of his talks, in Rabat, with the head of Slovenian diplomacy, Tanja Fajon.

Political scientist Moussaoui Ajlaoui paraphrased the Moroccan minister by estimating that international support constitutes a “strong message» to the authorities of Algiers so that they engage, as strongly desired by the UN, in the political settlement of this conflict on the basis of autonomy, “one and only credible solution to resolve the Moroccan Sahara affair under national sovereignty“.

Morocco also calls on the special envoy of the UN Secretary General for the Sahara Staffan de Mistura to remind him that Rabat has adhered to and accepted all the resolutions of the UN Security Council concerning the political settlement of this file on the basis of the autonomy project“, underlined researcher Moussaoui Ajlaoui.

How long must we wait for these parties without making them take responsibility for this impasse?, asked the political scientist, recalling the latest statements by Nasser Bourita and Omar Hilal, the Kingdom’s ambassador to the United Nations who pointed the finger at Algeria during UN Commission 24. “There is currently a change on an international scale characterized by strong support for the political solution and the Moroccan autonomy initiative“, estimated this Moroccan expert who accuses the Algiers junta of continuing to spend billions of dollars in favor of the Polisario mercenaries, while “the Algerian people suffer by waiting in huge queues to obtain basic food products“.

Algeria is a party to this conflict because, recalled Moussaoui, the Algerian junta “has always used the separatism card to attack Morocco“. The political scientist cited the frequent interventions of Algerian representatives before international bodies against Morocco and the poor relations that Algiers maintains with Spain for the simple fact that Madrid firmly supports the autonomy plan proposed by Morocco.
