Moroccan Sahara: Stubbornness in Seeking Unrealistic Solutions Prolongs Populations' Suffering (Sau

The stubbornness to seek unrealistic solutions to the Moroccan Sahara issue, going against the popular will and aspirations of the population, is a senseless thing that prolongs the suffering of the populations and contributes to undermining the efforts to resolve this conflict, wrote the Saudi paper +Arriyad+.

In an article by journalist Abdelrahman Al Jadie under the title "The Arab world and senseless conflicts", the publication stressed that the population of the Sahara cannot be attached to a region with ethnic or confessional connotations, but is an integral part of the Moroccan popular fabric, noting that any approach to the Sahara must be wise and balanced and reflect a knowledge of the civilizational aspect of the country as part of Morocco's sincere efforts to bring the countries and peoples of the African continent closer together.

In this regard, the author of the article, published on the website of the paper, recalled the dynamism and efficiency marking the Moroccan diplomatic efforts which are in line with the new changes and circumstances that the world is experiencing, including the interest given to development and prosperity, noting that turning the page of disputes is the geostrategic vision that fits with the new processes reaffirming the commonalities between neighboring countries in terms of principles, traditions and aspirations.

He added that this vision is also in harmony with the new mindset focused on meeting the needs of citizens, resilience in the face of economic crises, support for peace and development efforts, and the rejection of war and destruction.

The author of the article also recalled that since the withdrawal of Spain from the North and South of the Kingdom, Morocco has worked to consolidate its national sovereignty and preserve its territorial integrity, deploring the disputes in the region and conflicts of interest that have favored the creation of a separatist and rebel movement.

Such movements, he explained, have been led by certain countries that still live in the mentality of the 1950s and 1960s, a mentality that is outdated in a contemporary context marked by changes rejecting separatism and policies that erode states and nations.
