The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) rejected, on Friday at the UN headquarters in New York, any attempt to undermine the supreme interests of Morocco and its sovereignty.


“We express our rejection of any attempt to undermine the supreme interests of the brotherly Kingdom of Morocco, or its sovereignty”, said Manal Radwan, first secretary at Saudi Arabia’s mission at the UN, before the 4th Commission of the UN General Assembly on behalf of the delegations of the GCC states.


The GCC delegations expressed their satisfaction with the efforts aimed at reaching a “political and consensual” solution to the Sahara issue within the framework of relevant Security Council resolutions, including the 2285 resolution, and welcomed the efforts of the UN Special Envoy, Christopher Ross.


In this regard, they stressed the importance of continuing the commitment of all parties to “work seriously to contribute positively to the success of this important political process”.
