Sahara: US reiterates support for Moroccan autonomy plan


The United States reiterated, Monday, May 15, 2023, its support for the Moroccan autonomy plan as “serious, credible and realistic” for a final settlement of the regional conflict over the Moroccan Sahara. We continue to view the Moroccan autonomy plan as serious, credible and realistic,” said U.S. State Department Deputy Spokesman Vedant Patel at his daily press briefing. The U.S. position on this issue “has not changed,” he added in response to a question about the telephone conversation on Sunday, May 14, 2023, between the head of U.S. diplomacy, Antony Blinken, and Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita.

The consistent U.S. position was recalled last March by the U.S. Secretary of State, who reaffirmed his country’s support for the Moroccan autonomy plan for a lasting political solution to the regional conflict around the Sahara, under the auspices of the United Nations.

Through the voices of the most senior officials of the different branches of the U.S. government, the Biden administration has established a tradition in Washington confirming the primacy of the Moroccan autonomy initiative put on the table by the Kingdom since 2007, for the final settlement of the artificial conflict around the Sahara. This constant position reached its highest level with the historic recognition in 2020 by this international power and influential member of the UN Security Council, of the full sovereignty of Morocco over all its territory, including its southern provinces.
