On the sidelines of King Mohammed VI’s recent speech before the Moroccan people during the Green march national day, the Moroccan monarch stressed that comparing the Sahara issue to Timor-Leste is wrong.
“Those who try to compare the Sahara to Timor-Leste or some territorial disputes in Eastern Europe are just as wrong. Each issue has its own specific features and conditions. The bonds between the Saharan populations and Morocco are far from being recent. In fact, they are rooted in history,” King Mohammed VI said.
“Just as we believe in the justness of our cause, we also believe that what is right and legitimate will prevail over any separatist tendencies.We look forward, with hope and optimism, to the reunification of the sons of the Sahara in their homeland. I am confident they will be actively engaged in major new initiatives to promote development and offer a free, dignified life to all citizens, wherever they may be,” the Moroccan monarch further noted.
