Security Council Resolution on Sahara Issue, 'Setback' for Enemies of Morocco’s Territorial Integrity
The latest resolution adopted by the UN Security Council on the Sahara issue is a “setback” for the maneuvers of the enemies of Morocco’s territorial integrity, Communication Minister and Government Spokesman Mustapha El Khalfi said here on Thursday.
The Security Council has ruled on all attempts to change the MINURSO mandate and expand it to missions not agreed upon and to tasks alien to its purpose, El Khalfi added at a press briefing following the weekly cabinet meeting chaired by head of government Abdelilah Benkirane.
The minister recalled the statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation following the adoption of the Security Council’s resolution on the Sahara issue.
“This resolution reaffirms the parameters of the political solution, as defined by the Security Council since 2004 and clarified, in operational terms, in 2007,” the ministry said, adding that the resolution constitutes a “scathing setback for all the maneuvers of the UN Secretariat.”
