France Welcomes Morocco’s Unilateral Withdrawal from Guerguerat Region

France welcomed Morocco’s announcement of a unilateral withdrawal from the Guerguerat region, stressing that this is an important step that eases the situation while taking into account the stability and interest of the region.

“France calls on all parties to show responsibility and to unconditionally and immediately withdraw all armed elements from the region, in accordance with the ceasefire agreements,” spokesman of the French Foreign ministry, Romain Nadal, said.

The French official underlined that his country supports a just and negotiated solution under the aegis of the United Nations and in accordance with the resolutions of the UN Security Council, noting that France considers the autonomy plan submitted by Morocco in 2007 as “a serious and credible basis” for a negotiated solution.
