Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- Morocco’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Omar Hilale, said in the wake of an interactive debate of the Ministerial meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement, held in Venezuela, that the Moroccan Sahara is not an issue of decolonization but rather an issue related to the completion of Morocco’s territorial integrity, Morocco’s state news agency La MAP reported.
According Morocco’s state news agency, Hilale, the head of the Moroccan delegation at the aforementioned event, further stressed that the principle of sovereignty, enshrined by the founding fathers of the Non-Aligned Movement in the Declaration of Bandung, remains the basis of all bilateral and international relations.
Hilale affirmed that this principle was put on the same footing as that of the territorial integrity of countries in the Bandung Declaration.
“It is through this principle that Morocco has claimed and recovered its southern provinces after the northern region, the diplomat pointed out, noting that the Moroccan Sahara is not a question of decolonization, but an issue related to the completion of the county’s territorial integrity,” La MAP relayed.
