Rabat – Cape Verde has expressed its support for the Kingdom of Morocco in its “legitimate” decision to intervene peacefully to restore the movement of goods and people in the El Guerguarat area in the Moroccan Sahara.
“Cape Verde, which maintains excellent relations of friendship and cooperation with the Kingdom of Morocco and works for the promotion of peace, respect for human rights and the proper functioning of the democratic rule of law in the world, expresses its support for the Kingdom in its legitimate decision to intervene peacefully to restore the movement of goods and people in the area, and this in full compliance with international legality “, affirmed the Cape Verdean Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Luis Filipe Tavares, in a letter addressed to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans living abroad, Mr. Nasser Bourita.
In this letter, Mr. Filipe Tavares underlines that his country “strongly condemns the dangerous provocations which have occurred in the buffer zone of El Guerguarat”, noting that “these hostile acts aimed at sowing insecurity and instability in the region represent a threat to civil and commercial free movement and a violation of existing agreements “.
Faithful to its usual position, Cape Verde “denounces all the reckless acts which undermine the political process carried out under the aegis of the Secretary General of the United Nations, with a view to the search for a political solution to the question of the Sahara and welcomes Morocco’s commitment to respect for the Ceasefire Agreement, “the Cape Verdean diplomat said in his letter.
And to conclude that Cape Verde reiterates its support for the Moroccan autonomy initiative which it considers to be a credible way for the resolution of this conflict which has already been going on for many years.
