The independence of the Sahara could result in a dependent, inept and chaotic territory failed state dominated by Al Qaida, an entity known for its preference for sanctuaries in weak or failed states, U.S. paper World Tribune warned.



  The European Union and the United States are concerned of another sanctuary for Al Qaida, said the paper which commented on a report by the Chairman of the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI), Harvey Sicherman.

    Al-Qaeda is notorious for its preference for failed states, the World Tribune noted, adding that the last thing Africa needs is another "dependent and inept territory."

    In this study, published April 16, under the title: "A Note on the Western Sahara," Harvey Sicherman said the creation of a failed state in the Maghreb "cannot be in U.S. interests."

    He said the European Union and the United States now have a strong common cause for ending this conflict, which impedes essential economic and political change throughout the Maghreb.

    “The Europeans and the Maghreb states are far more aware - and wary - today of the consequences of a failure to develop their economic potential,” the report went on to say.

    Harvey Sicherman also said that there has been no change in Washington with regard to the autonomy plan proposed by Morocco for the Sahara region, which was described as “serious and credible.”
