The autonomy initiative, presented by Morocco and which enjoys growing international support, is the only solution likely to end the conflict around the Moroccan Sahara, wrote independent Argentinean news agency "Total News".


In an article entitled "The isolation of Polisario separatists is increasing", the agency says that thanks to its place on the international chessboard and to its active diplomacy, under the enlightened leadership of HM King Mohammed VI, the Kingdom succeeded in rallying support from African and South American countries, allowing the autonomy initiative to benefit from broad international support.


"The democratic countries of South America provide unconditional support to Morocco," says the author, Adalberto Carlos Agozino, academician and Argentinean expert in political science, adding that "several countries have become aware of the danger that represents separatism for the stability of the world and began to review their relations with groups that use separatism as a pretext to justify their activities ".


In this context, Agozino focused on the government's reaffirmation of the new Paraguayan President, Mario Abdo Benítez, for his support for the Kingdom's territorial integrity, and his intention to establish a strategic partnership between Asunción and Rabat.


This support was reiterated by the Minister of Foreign Relations, Luis Alberto Castiglioni who reaffirmed the firm position of his country supporting the territorial integrity of Morocco, says the author.


He added that Paraguay's support for the Moroccan Sahara was also expressed by the Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies, Miguel Cuevas, who emphasized his country's clear commitment to support the territorial integrity of Morocco as well as autonomy submitted by the Kingdom to put an end to this artificial regional conflict that has lasted for four decades.


After resumption of diplomatic relations between Morocco and Cuba, the professor at the John F. Kennedy University in Buenos Aires emphasized the importance of establishing direct relations between Rabat and Havana and consolidation of economic cooperation between the two countries.


In the same context, the author of "Geopolítica del Sahara-Sahel" (Geopolitics of the Sahara-Sahel, 2013) pointed out that most African countries do not recognize Polisario puppet entity, and have chosen to " to take the path of a just and more realistic policy on the Sahara by recognizing legitimate rights of Morocco.




Referring to Morocco's return to the African Union (AU) in January 2017, the Argentinean expert mentioned the appointment of HM King Mohammed VI "AU Leader for Immigration", recalling the presentation by the Kingdom, at the 30th Summit of the Union in January 2018, of the "African Agenda on Migration" which received immediate support from African leaders, which, in Agozino's view, "translates the growing leadership of Morocco on the African scene ".


The Argentinean academician concludes that in the face of continued support for the Moroccan Sahara, the isolation suffered by Polisario, joining terrorist groups, could push it to adopt "more radical" positions.
