a position "coherent and respectful of international law"

The support of the Spanish government for the Moroccan autonomy initiative for the Sahara constitutes a “coherent and respectful position of international law”, affirmed, on Monday, the Spanish Secretary of State for Foreign and Global Affairs, Angeles Moreno Bau.

By supporting autonomy as being “the most serious, realistic and credible base” for the resolution of this dispute, Spain has adopted a “a position consistent with the decisions taken by previous governments and fully respectful of international law“, pointed out Angeles Moreno Bau before the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Spanish Senate.

“The Spanish government defends a position that falls within the principles and parameters of the United Nations Charter and its resolutions” insisted the Spanish official, noting that this position also stems from Spain’s desire to contribute to regional stability.

“Promoting stability in our immediate neighborhood in the Mediterranean and the Sahel is one of the priorities of this government in a particularly volatile and uncertain geopolitical context. The security of the south-eastern shore is a priority for Spain and for the European Union“, observed the Secretary of State.

“The settlement of the Sahara dispute, which has lasted for almost half a century, requires a determined effort on the part of the international community (…) and would allow us to resume the path of greater regional integration, which would benefit our peoples and lead to greater stability and prosperity in the Mediterranean,”supported Angeles Moreno Bau.
