CNN’s Christiane Amanpour to host Morocco’s Ambassador to the UN on Tuesday

The Moroccan Ambassador, who has been Morocco’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations since November 2008 and presided over the UN Security Council last December, will present the Moroccan perspective on the issue of the Sahara and explain to the international audience the efforts being made by Morocco in order to move forward the negotiation process over the final status on the Sahara and to find a mutually agreed and political solution to the conflict.

 He will also shed light on some allegations and misconceptions that are being spread by some supporters of the Polisario.

Morocco is a member of the Security Council since January 1, 2012. It was elected on October 2011 for a two-year term that will end on December 31, 2013.

Before being appointed Morocco’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, Mr. Loulichki was his country’s Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva.
