The “serious and realistic” autonomy plan offered by Morocco for the Sahara under its sovereignty continues to gain a growing international support thanks to the far-sighted vision of King Mohammed VI who is tirelessly working for inclusive development, regional peace and shared prosperity.
Building on UN Security Council resolutions, several countries from Africa, Europe, Asia, Americas and the Middle East back Morocco’s territorial integrity and laud its pragmatic autonomy plan for reaching a lasting and peaceful solution to the Sahara regional conflict, dealing a hard blow to the Algerian regime and its Polisario separatist puppet.
From Washington to Madrid, Berlin, Lisbon, Brussels, Bern, Amsterdam Luxembourg, Rome, Bucharest, Riyadh, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Muscat, Manama, Dakar, Libreville, Ouagadougou, Niamey, Conakry…, the Moroccan autonomy plan is seen as the ONLY viable and realistic solution to the Sahara issue thanks to the proactive foreign policy spearheaded by the Monarch.
Prime ministers and top diplomats of several countries from around the world have commended the serious efforts engaged by Rabat to advance the UN-led political process for a lasting solution to the Moroccan Sahara issue.
They also support the efforts made by the UN Chief Antonio Guterres and his personnel envoy for the Sahara Staffan De Mistura to reach a realistic and practical solution, based on compromise as called for by UN Security Council resolutions.
Nearly 30 African, Arab and Latin American countries have opened consulates in the Saharan cities of Laayoune and Dakhla, a diplomatic move confirming their recognition of the Moroccanness of the Sahara and foiling the hostile plots hatched by the enemies of the North African kingdom.
The supporters of Morocco’s territorial integrity are impressed by the socioeconomic development of the Sahara thanks to the $8 billion New Development Model (NDM) launched by King Mohammed VI in 2015.
This ambitious initiative has given a new impetus to the local economy and helped the region build modern infrastructures (roads, schools, hospitals, airports…)
The NDM has also boosted renewable energy, tourism and improved the living conditions of local inhabitants who elect their local and national representatives, while those held in the Polisario-controled Tindouf camps, in southern Algeria, continue to suffer lamentable conditions.
Convinced that investments and the economic development are the main drivers of growth, progress and prosperity, Morocco has launched several projects in renewable energies, fisheries, industry, ports, highways…
These projects prompt the interests of worldwide private investors as the Sahara has become gateway to Africa, offering to the Kingdom’s strategic partners both proximity and privileged access to the African market.
Last week, UK Oblin group announced plans to invest $100 billion in green energy projects to be carried out in the Saharan cities of Laayoune and Dakhla.
According to Oblin’s CEO Brannan Tempest, the $100 bln investment will be used for the construction of a market-leading solar panel manufacturing plant, solar farm, and wind farm.
The company’s plans include the option to expand further with large-scale renewable energy generation that would be used for the manufacturing of Green Hydrogen and Green Liquid Ammonia. These projects will create several job opportunities in the Saharan region, living in peace and stability, key factors of attracting investors.
