Moroccan Sahara: France describes the Moroccan autonomy plan as a “serious and credible” basis


France reiterated, Friday in New York, its support for the Moroccan autonomy plan as a “serious and credible” basis for reaching a political solution to the Sahara issue. “France considers the Moroccan autonomy plan of 2007 as a serious and credible basis” for the settlement of this dispute, affirmed the permanent representative of France to the UN, Nicolas de Rivière to the members of the Security Council following the adoption of resolution 2602 extending for one year the mandate of MINURSO.

While calling for “respect for the ceasefire”, France underlined the “essential role” of MINURSO to “limit the risk of escalation and for the stability of the region”. France also expressed its full support for the Secretary-General’s new Personal Envoy for the Sahara, Staffan de Mistura.

“The resolution we have just adopted reaffirms the Council’s support for the political process which must be relaunched within the framework of the United Nations. His assumption of office on November 1 should make it possible to reach a just, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution in accordance with the resolutions of this Council ”, supported the French representative.

The United Nations Security Council has extended for one year the mandate of MINURSO, while confirming, once again, the preeminence of the Moroccan autonomy initiative to resolve the artificial conflict around the Sahara.
