Sahara: Guatemala for Solution that Respects Morocco's National Sovereignty and Territorial Integrity

The Republic of Guatemala expressed, on Friday, its support for a solution to the dispute over the Sahara that respects the national sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Kingdom of Morocco.

"The government of the Republic of Guatemala supports Morocco's efforts to find a political solution to this regional dispute and considers that the autonomy initiative presented by the Kingdom of Morocco in 2007 constitutes the realistic, credible and serious basis for achieving a negotiated outcome between the parties, in the context of respect for Morocco's territorial integrity and national sovereignty", said, in Rabat, Guatemala's deputy minister of Foreign Affairs, Luis Fernando Carranza Cifuentes, at a joint press briefing following his meeting with minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita.

The Republic of Guatemala "commends the efforts of HM King Mohammed VI for peace and stability throughout the world", and acknowledges the Sovereign's action in promoting South-South cooperation, the Guatemalan official said.
