While highlighting the momentum in economic and social development in the Sahara region, the newspaper says, in its edition of Saturday, that the Security Council of the United Nations approved a resolution in which it described the efforts of Morocco as "serious and credible".
The newspaper also says that the establishment of the Royal Advisory Council for Saharan Affairs (CORCAS) "led by prominent Sahrawi personalities," in order to promote all-round development in this part of the Kingdom.
The daily Panamanian paper evokes, on the other hand, two alternatives: "prolong a humanitarian tragedy that has lasted too long in the camps of Tindouf, in southern Algeria, or" end the conflict by implementing the Moroccan autonomy proposal"
Concerning the threats made by "separatists" to resume weapons, "which contradicts the principles of negotiation", the paper stresses that "in reality, it is Algeria, which has the final word in this dispute as the main financial and logistical support to the Polisario".
"La Estrella de Panama" mentions, on the other hand, the existence of a "humanitarian tragedy", referring to the situation of the populations sequestered in the Tindouf camps”.
"The younger generations suffer more insecurity and despair," deplores the publication, adding that many of those who survived the reality of life in the camps, have preferred to return to Morocco or join neighbouring countries or Europe.
However, the paper continues, "the majority of heads of the Saharan tribes have not left the region, in southern Morocco, where they are witnessing a reality very different from that prevailing in the camps", stressing that the people Southern provinces are represented by elected officials at the municipal, provincial and Parliament levels.
The heads of tribes support the Moroccan autonomy initiative because it "guarantees political, economic, social and cultural rights, within the framework of international legality" and "accuse Algeria to hold, against their will, their relatives and deprive them of economic and social well-being they enjoy in Morocco, "says the newspaper.
Moreover, the Panamanian daily refers to the concern of the international community on safety issues in the region "long before that Al Qaeda announced the unification of its terrorist command "in the Sahel.
"In addition to the terrorist bases," it adds, it would also strengthen smuggling, illegal immigration, trafficking in human beings, drugs and arms.
The newspaper says that most Latin American, African and Asian countries "call for a political solution to the dispute". They opt for the freezing or withdrawal of their recognition of the "RASD", at a time when Europe and the United States "express support" for the Moroccan initiative.
