Success of autonomy initiative drove other parties to 'brazen exploitation' of human rights, FM.

Summary: Rabat - The success, which the Moroccan autonomy initiative had, drove the other parties to create a diversion through the brazen exploitation of the human rights principle, Foreign Minister Taieb Fassi Fihri said on Wednesday.

"Faced with this pre-eminence, the other parties resorted to an action plan to spoil negotiations, maintain the status quo, synonymous with deterioration, and try to create a diversion through the brazen exploitation of the lofty principle of human rights," the Minister told radio channel Medi1 Radio.

"The report of the UNSG did not fall into this trap, on the contrary, it highlighted the speech by HM the King, on March 9, and the importance of the announced reforms," he noted, adding that the report called on the other parties to fulfil their duties in terms of the respect for human rights.

Referring to the Moroccan-Algerian ties, Fassi Fihri said that HM the King and President Bouteflika decided to "favour attempts of bilateral normalization through the exchange of visits at the ministerial level."

On the Libyan crisis, the official underlined that Morocco aligns itself with resolution 1973 by the UNSC on the call for ceasefire.

He added that it is extremely important to take account of the legitimate aspirations of the Libyan people while engaging in a political process to settle the crisis.
