Several France-based NGOs Extoll FAR Intervention in El Guerguarat

A collective of France based associations welcomed the intervention of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR) to liberate the border area of El Guerguarat and restore order and security in the region.

In a statement, the collective which gathers several Moroccan-French organizations, praised "the firm, peaceful and limited intervention, carried out by the Royal Armed Forces on November 13 in strict compliance with international law, to restore order, ensure free movement of goods and people and guarantee their safety in the border area of El Guerguarat".

It also "denounced and condemned in the strongest terms the acts of banditry perpetrated by armed polisario militias in the southern border of the Kingdom of Morocco, in blatant violation of UN Security Council Resolutions 2414 and 2440, guided by the sole purpose of disrupting the political process of large autonomy initiated by Morocco, together with the international community, since 2007.

The collective also "condemned with the same firmness the acts of vandalism committed by individuals of dubious allegiance against the consular representations of the Kingdom in Spain, and is pleased with the reaction of the Spanish authorities who were able to put an end to and punish these acts of delinquency."

These associations, namely "Coordination internationale d'Autonomie du Sahara", "l'association des compétences maroco-françaises", "la coordination des Marocains de France", "l'association culturelle marocaine de Normandie", "l'association Ensemble Ici et Ailleurs", "l'association culturelle Ibn Batouta", "l'association des ressortissants marocains pour le progrès et la culture", "l'association de solidarité citoyenne Evreux" and "l'association La Passerelle des cultures solidaires", also expressed "the unwavering attachment of its members to the national unity of Morocco, its territorial integrity, its sacred symbols and its institutions."
