A commitment to continuity and an unfailing attachment

Morocco celebrates this year the 47th anniversary of the green march, which keeps intact its taste for victory, in the light of the diplomatic advances made in the Moroccan Sahara file throughout these years.

The Moroccan people and their King are therefore commemorating the anniversary of this epic, which is, and will remain, an unprecedented model of commitment and unfailing patriotic attachment of the people and their King, Mohammed VI, who knew how to guide his country. , from Tangier to Lagouira, on the road to development and modernity.

On this occasion, MoroccoLatestNews UK spoke with the political analyst, Driss Aissaoui, who focused in particular on the symbolism of this holiday for Moroccans, but also the dynamics it has set in motion, to always move forward in the defense of the first national cause.

This year, Morocco and its people are celebrating the 47th anniversary of the Green March in a context marked by strong Moroccan diplomatic dynamics on the Sahara issue…

It is important to underline a point which seems to me to be perfectly in line with all the efforts that the Kingdom has undertaken to preserve its territorial integrity.

On the diplomatic level, there have been many advances that can be classified in order of importance. We can talk about the fact that Donald Trump had recognized the Moroccanness of the Saharan provinces. His example was followed by many other countries. His gesture was innovative, but at the same time very special, because it allowed Morocco to be able to take its breath and move forward in terms of consolidating this territorial integrity.

In fact, the Sahara file is complex, but simple to understand. These are provinces that Morocco was able to develop after the departure of the colonizer, that is to say Spain. Since that time there has been a rather particular situation, because Algeria and at the time Libya, undertook to train young Sahrawis by making them dangle dreams of independence and separatism.

And from 1975, the separatists of the polisario, supported, maintained, trained and armed by Algeria, live off mercenaries, get involved in all kinds of trafficking, openly pact with terrorist groups, and lead a fight, vain and devoid of any basis to impose on the international community a puppet entity, called the sardp.

For nearly 50 years, therefore, whole generations of young Sahrawis have seen their future ruined. There are some who know nothing except the part of the Algerian territory they occupy, namely Tindouf, where they live in camps, piled up without any form of humanism.

And not content with arming and sheltering the Polisario, Algeria has spent billions to “buy” recognition from the separatist entity, and therefore, an altogether illegal membership of the Organization of African Union (OAU), which has since become AU.

In protest against this “political fraud”, Morocco had left the Union, but it understood, a few years later, that the policy of the empty chair could not pay off.

The Kingdom has therefore returned to its African family during a memorable trip by King Mohammed VI to Nairobi, who announced the return of Morocco to the bosom of Africa. Today, the vast majority of those who recognized the so-called SADR at the time have withdrawn their recognition.

And since then, extremely significant progress has been made in the Sahara issue and particularly in this way of governing. Indeed, the governance of this file has changed a lot and today, and the Sahara issue is in the hands of seasoned Moroccan diplomats who know the file very well and are moving it forward with great success, in accordance with a royal vision clear-sighted and recognized.

The Sahara file is therefore on the right track, and in my opinion, there is nothing to worry about at this level.

These diplomatic advances were crowned by the last resolution voted at the UN….

Morocco has of course continued its work in the service of its cause, particularly with the United Nations, within the framework of the mechanism provided for this purpose, but also within the framework of its sovereignty.

The Kingdom has thus put on the table an autonomy initiative (2007), allowing the Sahrawi populations to manage their affairs themselves, under Moroccan sovereignty. An initiative that has been applauded by the international community as the realistic and achievable solution to resolve this artificial conflict.

Today, more than 20 countries have opened diplomatic representations in the southern provinces, in Dakhla and Laâyoune.

The other positive point is that this diplomatic breakthrough also opens up good economic prospects, in the sense that when you open a consulate or an embassy, ​​it is also a window of opportunity for investment. And the example of Dakhla is very eloquent…

In the end, if the epic of the Green March was a model of solidarity, commitment and citizenship, everything that followed showed that the Kingdom remains committed to the path of development and prosperity, strong of its values ​​and principles, and firmly attached to its constants.
