"Morocco must collaborate with Christopher Ross's successor and respect its international commitments" (Minister of Foreign Affairs)

Algeria, March 14,  2017  (SPS) - Foreign Minister and member of the National Secretariat, Mohamed Salem Uld Salek, said Monday at a press conference in Algiers that Morocco should collaborate with Christopher's successor Ross and to respect its international commitments which had accepted and signed.

 

Mohamed Salem Uld Salek said that the problem raised is not what will happen to the special envoy of the UN SG in Western Sahara, but how Morocco will react to the future team of the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara.

 

 In the same context, the Minister of Foreign Affairs wonders whether Morocco cooperates with the United Nations or not and respects the commitments it has formally accepted, consisting of the UN settlement plan agreed by both sides, the Frente POLISARIO and Morocco , In the year 1991.

 

The foreign minister added that the problem is whether or not France will help the United Nations mission to carry out its work in holding the referendum on self-determination of the Saharawi people, noting that Ross tried to promote, France and Spain to work in order to persuade Morocco to seriously collaborate with the UN and stop putting obstacles in the way of a peaceful solution to the conflict.
