Rabat – Political and non-governmental actors from several Latin American countries have expressed their support for the autonomy plan proposed by Morocco for its southern provinces, as a final and just solution to the dispute over the Moroccan Sahara.
“We call on our counterparts in Latin America to support the autonomy plan presented by the Kingdom of Morocco as a definitive and realistic solution (to the Sahara issue) that guarantees the establishment of a lasting peace for the economic development of this region,” said the parliamentary friendship group Honduras-Morocco, the parliamentary friendship group Nicaragua-Morocco and the parliamentary friendship group Bolivia-Morocco as well as the Global Africa Latina Foundation, which brings together a collective of Latin American non-governmental organizations, in a joint statement received Tuesday by MAP.

They also underscored the importance of creating a framework for strengthening relations with Morocco and developing a joint action plan to this end.
