This is what Morocco has always preserved in its relationship with its southern provinces. "
The Indian newspaper believes that "Morocco has made and continues to make much in favor of progress and comfort in the Sahara, a region that has always been linked to the Kingdom by ties of allegiance".
The author considers that "the separatist trend is now an instrument in the hands of local political groups which try to exploit it to concentrate power in their hands," adding that "the separatists who are the basis elites in their societies are playing the card of self-determination to continue with their families to take advantage of the situation.
