Equatorial Guinea hailed, in New York, Morocco's "tireless" commitment to finding a solution to the Sahara issue, stressing that the autonomy plan presented by the Kingdom constitutes a "solid and realistic basis" for definitively settling this regional dispute.


Speaking at the annual meeting of the UN Committee of 24, Equatorial Guinea's permanent representative to the UN, Anatolio Ndong Mba, noted that this "credible and serious" initiative enjoys the support of many international players as a solution towards a lasting political agreement that guarantees stability and prosperity in the region.
Noting that Morocco is working constructively with the United Nations and other international players to find a political solution based on compromise, dialogue and mutual respect, the diplomat described the Kingdom's approach as pragmatic.

This development-oriented approach has laid the foundations for a realistic, practical and lasting political solution to the regional dispute over the Moroccan Sahara, he said, adding that the international community must support these efforts and work together to achieve a just and lasting peace.

He also praised the efforts of the UN Secretary-General's Personal Envoy for the Sahara, Staffan de Mistura, to relaunch the political process under the aegis of the Secretary-General, notably his visits to the region in January, July and September 2022, as well as the informal consultations held last March in New York with the parties involved in the dispute.

The representative of Equatorial Guinea called for the resumption of the round table process, in the same format and with the same participants: Morocco, Algeria, Mauritania and the Polisario, in accordance with Security Council resolution 2654.

He also considered it important to recognize the efforts and concrete measures taken by Morocco to promote the socio-economic development of the Sahara region.

"Through infrastructure projects and investments in key sectors and community development programs, it has demonstrated its commitment to improving the quality of life of the region's inhabitants and encouraging their participation in the political process," he noted.

The diplomat also mentioned the opening of 28 consulates general in the cities of Dakhla and Laâyoune, by Arab, African, Asian and American countries, as well as regional organizations, with the aim of taking advantage of the economic and social opportunities offered by Morocco.
