Foreign Minister, Taib Fassi Fihri, and Director of Morocco's Intelligence Agency (DGED), Mohamed Yassine Mansouri were received here on Friday by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
"We discussed several issues, notably the situation in the Maghreb and the development of the Sahara issue," Fassi Fihri told the press following a meeting with the UNSG. AaAa The Moroccan official reaffirmed "Morocco's full commitment to reach a political solution based on the resolutions of the UN Security Council, and calling for substantive negotiations and a realist approach." AaAa This meeting falls is part of the regular dialogue between Morocco and the UN, especially on the ongoing negotiation process over the Moroccan Sahara," he added. AaAa In this regard, Fassi Fihri deplored that the second round of informal talks was postponed because of "the attitude and maneuvers adopted and led by Algeria and the Polisario," underlining that these "parties refuse to reach a political solution and opt for the impass situation" that prevails in the Maghreb. AaAa "I want to say, here, clearly that the choice is between a solution, within a framework of a real compromise, which will be based on legality and international standards and give the chance to the Maghreb to achieve its integration, or the maintainAa of the current situation with all doors closed," Fassi Fihri added.
