King Mohammed VI received, in Rabat, UN chief Antonio Guterres to whom he reiterated Morocco’s steady position to settle the regional dispute over the Sahara on the basis of the autonomy initiative.
Morocco has put forward the autonomy initiative under its sovereignty as a win-win solution to the Algeria-fabricated conflict since 2007.
The talks also raised resolution 2654 of the UN Security Council adopted in October 2022.
In this respect, the King reaffirmed support for the UN Sahara Special Envoy Stafan De Mistura and for the peace-keeping mission of the MINURSO.
Guterres thanked the King for the success of the Alliance of Civilizations’ 9th forum in Fez and commended the commitment of the sovereign to the values of openness, tolerance and dialogue.
He also highlighted Morocco’s contribution to peace keeping and stability and development promotion on the African continent.
