A Moroccan delegation, led by minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita, held talks on Tuesday in Lisbon with UN Secretary-General Personal Envoy for the Moroccan Sahara, Horst Kohler.

The Moroccan delegation included Omar Hilale, Permanent Representative of the Kingdom of Morocco to the United Nations, Sidi Hamdi Ould Errachid, President of the Laayoune-Sakia El Hamra region and Ynja Khattat, President of the Dakhla-Oued Eddahab region.


The participation of the Moroccan delegation in this bilateral meeting, at the invitation of the Personal Envoy, “is part of Morocco's continuous cooperation with the United Nations to reach a final political solution to the regional dispute over the Moroccan Sahara,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation had previously said in a statement.


During this bilateral meeting, “the Moroccan delegation will be guided by the bases of the national position as outlined in the speech of His Majesty King Mohammed VI to the Nation, on the occasion of the commemoration of the 42nd anniversary of the Green March, on November 6, 2017,” the ministry had added.
