The Sahara autonomy plan presented by Morocco for the final settlement of the Sahara issue is based on different experiences and universally recognized international standards, said on Sunday the Jordanian daily "Al-Sabil”.



Morocco, which has chosen decentralization for several years, considers through the autonomy proposal to expand and develop the administrative decentralization in order to establish a decentralization policy in the southern provinces, the newspaper said, noting that the autonomy proposal takes into account the social and cultural specificities in the region.


Autonomy is an extension of self-determination, the newspaper said, mentioning in this regard, the position of the former UN envoy Peter Van Walsum, who stated in a report to the Security Council that the independence of Western Sahara is an unrealistic option.

On the other hand, the newspaper said that the Moroccan autonomy proposal has been welcomed by the international community including some powers like the United States, France and Spain, a position that supports the realism and objectivity of the Moroccan autonomy initiative, especially as civil society is now more aware and convinced of the need to address this problem which has become one of the oldest conflicts inherited from the Cold War at the expense of the peoples of the region and the international community.

Al Sabil adds that the Security Council also welcomed the Moroccan autonomy proposal describing it as credible, noting that in one of the resolutions the Security Council stressed the importance of negotiations between the parties and the need to find a solution acceptable to all.

Maintaining the tension in this vital region is in the interest of no party, the paper said, claiming that the option of peaceful settlement and finding a workable solution acceptable offers great opportunities for coordination and cooperation and faces challenges which confirm that the areas of tension and conflict have dangerous and negative social, political and economic effects that transcend borders.

The Jordanian newspaper concludes that the problem of the Sahara hampers many opportunities in the Maghreb region and has significant negative impact on the Maghreb construction process at a time when groupings have become essential.
