Abdelmajid Belaghzal, a member of the Royal Advisory Council for Saharan Affairs said in a statement to the Anatole news agency, that Morocco is in favor of negotiations on the Sahara issue according to the conditions it has already stated.


The statement comes amid reports that the UN Secretary-General's Personal Envoy called for talks with the Sahara parties in December.


Abdelmajid Belaghzal enumerated the bases of autonomy negotiations  submitted by Morocco in 2007, according to a proposal made by the Saharawis themselves through the Council (Corcas), adopted unanimously by Morocco.


 The three bases are:


- The Kingdom of Morocco seeks autonomy as a solution to the conflict around the Sahara


- Morocco considers that Algeria is a main stakeholder in the negotiations, so there can be no negotiations without Algeria


- The Sahara conflict falls exclusively within the competence of the Security Council


The Corcas member adds that Morocco has been able to maintain the Sahara issue at the Security Council, solely to find a just and final solution to this conflict, adding that the maximum that the Kingdom can give up for the solution of this conflict is autonomy.


These statements come after reports by several media that Horst Köhler invited parties to the conflict: Morocco, Algeria, Polisario and Mauritania to a meeting December 4 and 5 in Geneva. .


No official UN announcement has been issued so far.
