Kuwaiti Ministry of Foreign Affairs Reaffirms Importance of Solving Sahara Issue within Framework of Morocco’s Sovereignty

The Kuwaiti ministry of Foreign Affairs reaffirmed on Sunday Kuwait’s principled and firm stance on Morocco’s territorial integrity and the importance of solving the Sahara issue within the framework of the Kingdom’s sovereignty.

An official source at the Foreign Ministry said that Kuwait’s stance on the issue has remained unchanged and that “Morocco’s Sahara” is the term adopted as part of the discourse of Kuwait’s foreign policy, Kuwait news agency (KUNA) reported.

The Kuwaiti official cited Kuwait’s support to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2414 of last Friday on this issue, KUNA added.

The Security Council adopted, on Friday, a resolution that extends the Minurso’s mandate for six months and reaffirms the pre-eminence of Morocco’s autonomy plan to move the process forward towards resolution.

In this resolution, the Security Council also expressed concern with the presence of the Polisario Front in the buffer strip in Guerguerat and called for its immediate withdrawal.
