In a testimony published daily by the Tunisian newspaper "Al-chourouq" covering relationships between three Maghreb countries (Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria), Mr. Belkhouja said that Algeria has sought "to impose and reinforce such an entity" after the creation of the Polisario Front and its location on Algerian soil.
Since then, Algeria "has consistently campaigning for the organization and recognition of a fake political entity," he added, noting that Morocco "has always worked to cope with these developments" , since the Kingdom has firm conviction that the Saharan region is part of the Kingdom, before the Spanish occupation.
In addition, Mr. Belkhouja said that Tunisia "has continued working to ensure that the two brothers (Morocco and Algeria) reach a consensual solution" before adding: "That's what Bourguiba wanted and this is its approach in such issues (...) But the reality is that Bourguiba believed that the Sahara issue is an artificial problem. It is a region which was very sparsely populated".
