Moroccan diplomacy at work to cut off SADR’s wings

Moroccan diplomacy led by King Mohammed VI in person, thanks to his excellent relations with most African leaders, was busy defending the first national cause, “Western Sahara”, on the sidelines of the 5th AU-EU Summit, held in Abidjan November 29-30.

Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita and other members of the Moroccan delegation have done a lot of work behind the scenes, to convince the diplomats and leaders of the countries that still recognize the chimerical Sahrawi republic “SADR”, to withdraw their recognition.

Part of Morocco’s breakthroughs in the continent, King Mohammed VI held separate meetings in Abidjan with the presidents of Angola João Lourenço and of South Africa Jacob Zuma, two countries that were considered so far unconditional supporters of the Polisario Front.

The Moroccan sovereign’s talks with each of the two African leaders were “warm and candid” and augur new relations at political, diplomatic and economic levels between Morocco and each of the two countries.

King Mohammed VI even invited President Lourenço to pay an official visit to Morocco in the very near future, and the Angolan Head of State immediately accepted the invitation.

The talks have made anxious the Algerian and Polisario leaders, who rely on these two English-speaking countries to support them in the diplomatic battle they have been waging for more than 40 years against Morocco over the Western Sahara that they seek to balkanize.

In parallel, the Moroccan Foreign Minister has endeavored actively at the Afro-European summit to reduce the field of action and shrink the alliances of the Polisario and its Algerian sponsors.

In this connection, Nasser Bourita told the Spanish news agency “EFE”, that many African countries will soon withdraw their recognition to the pseudo “SADR”.

He also made it clear that Morocco will not sign any document bearing the name of the pseudo-“SADR”, “neither at this summit, nor in future meetings”.
