Bahrain's sovereign Hamad Ben Aissa Al Khalifa, reiterated, here Sunday, his country's support to Moroccan territorial integrity and sovereignty, reaffirming his support to UN-sponsored international efforts aimed at reaching a final, political and conciliatory settlement for the Sahara issue.

The stance came at a joint statement released on the fringes of the private visit of King Hamad Ben Aïssa Al Khalifa to Morocco.

King of Bahrain also hailed king's Mohammed VI initiative to grant enlarged autonomy to Morocco's Southern provinces within the framework of Moroccan territorial integrity and sovereignty, to reach a solution to the Sahara conflict.

Morocco is devising the autonomy project as a solution to the Sahara conflict, triggered in 1975 by the Algeria-backed "Polisario." The separatist movement lays claims to Morocco's Southern Provinces, known as the Sahara. The former Spanish colony was retrieved by Morocco under the Madrid accord signed in 1975.

King Mohammed VI expressed to the Bahraini king his sincere recognition for his honorable and firm stance over Morocco’s territorial integrity.

The two leaders also strongly condemned all forms of terrorism, calling on the international community to join efforts to uproot terror.

They also urged dialogue between civilizations, cultures and religions on the basis of  equality, mutual respect and the cultural specificities of different people.

While expressing their deep concerns over the current difficult conditions prevailing in the Arab and Islamic arenas, the two leaders urged more efforts and stronger solidarity to overcome disputes, challenges and to preserve vital interests and national issues of Islamic Arab countries.

They also stressed the importance of dialog and negotiation to solve disagreements and conflicts, hailing the democratic developments that are being implemented in the Arab countries.

Touching on bilateral relations, the two sovereigns hailed the excellency of these bounds, stressing the necessity of seeking new partnership horizons for the two countries, namely in the Economic, financial and social sectors.

On the occasion of this visit which coincided with id Al Adha, King Hamad expressed best wishes of good health and happiness for the Sovereign and progress and prosperity for the Moroccan people.

The King Hamad Ben Aissa Al Khalifa, who arrived on December 22 on a private visit to Morocco, left the Kingdom and was seen off by Prime Minister Driss Jettou.
