The re-inclusion of the Sahrawi issue on the PSC agenda after adopting the proposal of Lesotho will revive the debate on this issue under the AU laws, which provide for respect for the borders inherited after independence, Abdelkader Taleb Omar told APS on the sidelines of a meeting with the Human Rights and Just Causes Monitoring Watchdog.
“Since its return to the AU, the Moroccan regime seeks to hinder the vital positions of the continental organization by exclusively entrusting the Troika mechanism with the settlement process,” said Taleb Omar.
“This almost still-born African mechanism has experienced a bitter failure. Worse still, it obstructed the effectiveness of the AU as it has not expressed positions since its creation in 2018,” said the Sahrawi diplomat.
“The return of the Sahrawi issue to the forefront is a real achievement for our cause and a blatant failure for Morocco’s plans,” he said.
According to the Sahrawi diplomat, the recent developments have unveiled the hidden goals of Morocco behind the resort to the Troika, underlying “preventing the AU from assuming its responsibilities and contributing to the UN settlement process.”
“The Makhzen regime works to keep the issue at the Security Council in order to be protected from France,” he continued.
