By adopting Resolution 2494 on the Sahara, the UN Security Council reaffirmed the relevance of the autonomy plan proposed by Morocco and confirmed the growing support for the territorial integrity of the Kingdom, said the President of the Latin American Center for Democracy Studies, Antonio Yelpi.
Through this resolution, the decision-making body of the United Nations, and through it the entire international community, is devoting the preeminence of autonomy to the solution of this artificial conflict, while inviting all parties to find a realistic political, pragmatic and durable solution based on compromise, noted Mr. Yelpi in an interview with the MAP.
According to the expert, the return to a 12-month extension of Minurso's mandate demonstrates the Security Council's commitment to the serenity of the political process, against the idea that a shorter term should serve to put pressure to accelerate a solution to this conflict that has lasted too long.
Returning to the historical foundations of Moroccan Sahara, Mr. Yelpi, who is also a consultant to the Africa Latin Foundation, highlighted the historical ties of allegiance that unite the Saharawi tribes and the monarchy.
During this meeting, the president of the Latin American Center went into detail about the historical reality of the Moroccan Sahara, noting that "the thousand-year-old monarchy has always been perceived in the Saharan provinces as a political and spiritual authority, being the only legitimate authority for its inhabitants ".
For this, "it is natural that the cultural and social links between Moroccans from the south and those from the north are obvious realities from history and social interactions," he said.
