The USA has announced that it supports the territorial integrity of Morocco according to the "New Africa" magazine which has a strong North Africa focus. The magazine quotes the senior US official dealing with the Middle East, Richard Armitage, who made the comments on the pan Arab satellite station, "Al Jazeera".


The issue at hand is the Sahara, which demands autonomy and has taken the case to the UN. The USA meanwhile, is reinforcing relations with Morocco which it views as an important strategic ally against the global Jihad.
