Peru has withdrawn its recognition of the “SADR” and instead now supports the autonomy plan proposed by Morocco.
The Kingdom of Morocco has welcomed the decision of the Republic of Peru to withdraw its recognition of the so-called “SADR” – taken a year ago, and joins the mainstream of 84% of the members of the United Nations who have withdrawn their recognition of the puppet entity, and who support Morocco’s territorial integrity.
Commenting on this decision, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans abroad, Mr. Nasser Bourita, said that the Kingdom of Morocco appreciates and welcomes this decision of the Republic of Peru. This successful diplomatic initiative now opens a new page in bilateral relations.
The two governments have agreed to strengthen their bilateral relations through the immediate signing of a multi-sectoral roadmap that includes periodic political consultations, effective cooperation in the economic, commercial, educational, energy, agricultural and fertiliser fields.
In a statement issued by the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Peru expressed its “respect for the territorial integrity of the Kingdom of Morocco, its national sovereignty, and the autonomy plan relating to this regional dispute” around the Moroccan Sahara.
The statement explains that the decision is taken in accordance with international law, enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations. In accordance with international law and UN resolutions on the Sahara, the Government of the Republic of Peru expressed its respect for the territorial integrity of the Kingdom of Morocco and its national sovereignty, as well as the autonomy plan relating to this regional dispute.
