Senegalese president, Macky Sall, on Tuesday reiterated his country's "firm" and "constant" support for the Moroccan sovereignty over the Sahara, underlining that the Moroccan initiative to grant a large autonomy to its southern provinces, the Sahara, is "the appropriate solution for a final settlement of this conflict".

In a joint communiqué published at the end of the official visit paid by King Mohammed VI to Senegal, the sovereign and the Senegalese president underlined that the persistence of the conflict over the Moroccan Sahara is a "potential threat to the territorial integrity and safety of the region's countries and a serious obstacle before the regional integration process".

King Mohammed VI on Tuesday left Senegal, the first leg of an African tour that will take the Sovereign also to Côte d'Ivoire and Gabon.
