Paraguay supports a UN-brokered solution respecting the territorial integrity of Morocco, said, on Wednesday in Rabat, speaker of the National Paraguayan Congress Julio César Velasquez Tilleria.

"We confirm our commitment to strengthening our relations with Morocco and we reiterate our stand over the Sahara issue in favor of a UN-brokered solution that respects the territorial integrity of Morocco in order to reach as soon as possible a solution to this dispute," Velasquez Tilleria told the press following his meeting with Minister Delegate for Foreign Affairs Mbarka Bouaida.

Bouaida recalled that the visit of the Paraguayan official follows the adoption of UNSC resolution 2152 which backs the position of Morocco to find a political solution to the Sahara issue within the framework of the autonomy plan, lauding Paraguay's unconditional support for Morocco's territorial integrity.

Paraguay is a friendly and very important Latin American country which could play the role of a facilitator in terms of cooperation between Morocco and this region, she added.
