Morocco rejects UN interpretation on Sahara issue
Morocco has rejected as "erroneous" the interpretation of the United Nations Security Council's Resolution on the Sahara issue as included in the recent report of the UN Secretary General, as well as any attempt to impose a solution in the dispute without the agreement of the involved parties.
This came in a letter addressed on Tuesday, by Morocco's representative to the UN, Mohamed Bennouna, to the chairman of the Security Council, American Ambassador John D. Negroponte, prior to the debate on the Sahara issue set for next Monday.
In his letter, cited by MAP, Bennouna drew Negroponte's attention to the "erroneous interpretation" of this resolution that clearly paves the way for "the quest of a political solution to the conflict".
Bennouna insists on the "mediator or facilitator" role that the UN secretary general's personal envoy for the Sahara has to play in the interest of peace and stability in the (North African) region.
