Chahid El Hafed, February 15, 2017 (SPS) -Minister of Foreign Affairs and member of the National Secretariat, Mohamed Salem Uld Salek, said Wednesday that Morocco to rejoin the African Union was forced to accept Which had previously rejected and thus recognize the reality of the African organization where SADR is member 39 in the African Union.
Mohamed Salem Uld Salek, in an interview with the Sahara Libre newspaper, stated that all Moroccan attempts had failed to exclude the Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic from the African Union thanks to the firmness of the African Union which defends the right of the Saharawi people to self-determination and independence.
Uld Salek added that the struggle of the Saharawi people and their just cause forced Morocco to recognize the right of the Saharawi people to self-determination and freedom.
Mohamed Salem Uld Salek stressed that Morocco, with the signing of the African Union Constitutive Act, has officially recognized its internationally recognized borders, and if it tries to escape from its obligations, it will find itself in difficult situations and in isolation in Africa and in the world "Because the principles of the African organization are based on the liberation of the continent and its decolonization and are opposed to aggression and occupation of a territory by force," says the Foreign Minister.
