Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- During the Moroccan government cabinet’s weekly meeting, held this morning in Rabat, Morocco’s head of the government criticized again Ban Ki-moon, stressing that his actions are incompatible with the obligations and mission of a Secretary General, which require of him a duty of objectivity and impartiality and the respect of the references established by the UN bodies, though stressing that “the Moroccan people do not hate Ban Ki-moon and the United Nations.”
“Quite the country, we are advancing our rights and bringing forth our position on the Sahara, protecting the rights of our children who were born in those areas, as well as the right of those who were born in the Algerian territories, under Algeria’s sway, hoping that one day we’ll bring them back among us.”
Among others, Benkirane stressed that the world should fully understand that “the question of the Sahara is a question of life or death for Moroccans.”
“It is our history and the land of our grandparents,” Benkirane added.
