Central American Parliament Reiterates Support to Morocco’s Autonomy Plan

The Central American Parliament (PARLACEN) reiterated on Tuesday its support to the autonomy plan presented by Morocco to settle the Sahara issue.

“We reiterate the position of the Central American Parliament in favor of the autonomy plan presented by Morocco, and we support the efforts of the Kingdom in order to reach a peaceful solution to the Sahara issue,” Parlacen’s vice president Roberto Carlos Montoya told the press following talks in Rabat between a delegation from the Central American Parliament and the Chairman of the Royal Advisory Council for Saharan Affairs (CORCAS), Khalihenna Ould Errachid.

Montoya also stressed that the Central American Parliament, which granted Morocco the status of a permanent observer member, supports efforts aiming at reaching a political solution to this artificial dispute in accordance with parameters set by the UN Security Council.

The PARLACEN delegation, which is on a working visit to Morocco, held talks earlier with Minister Delegate to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Mbarka Bouaida.
Based in Guatemala City, the Central American Parliament comprises Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Panama.
