Guerguarat: OIC Voices Support for Measures Taken by Morocco to Secure Flow of Goods and People

The Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has voiced its support for the measures taken by the "Kingdom of Morocco to secure the flow of goods and people at the buffer zone of Guerguarat in the Moroccan Sahara".

In a statement issued on Saturday, the Organization "condemns any act that undermines free movement in this area linking Morocco and Mauritania".

The OIC "calls for restraint, avoiding escalation and respect for the resolutions of international legality."

The Royal Armed Forces (FAR) set up, in the night of Thursday to Friday, a security cordon in order to secure the flow of goods and people through the buffer zone of Guerguarat, connecting Morocco to Mauritania.
