Leading Moroccan daily Akhbar Al Yaoum said in its today’s edition that king Mohammed VI’s speech on the sidelines of the Green March national day was destined, first and foremost, to the American decision makers in the white house as there is some ambiguity in the way they deal with the Sahara issue, which prompted the Moroccan King to ask them for a crystal-clear position concerning this conflict.
During his speech, King Mohammed VI has expressed his “appreciation to the Secretary-General of the United Nations Organization and to the major international powers – especially the United States of America and the White House in particular – for making a positive contribution at various stages to finding a solution to this issue.”
Yet, “while valuing their support for Morocco’s efforts and for the negotiating process on the basis of the autonomy initiative” on the one hand, King Mohammed stressed that he is calling, today, for “a clear position concerning this conflict.”
The Moroccan monarch said that “at a time when they reaffirm that Morocco is a model for democratic development, an influential state in ensuring security and stability in the region and a partner in the fight against terrorism, there is some ambiguity in the way they deal with the question of its territorial integrity.”
