Moroccan Sahara: The frivolity of the Algerian regime at the origin of the status quo delaying the settlement of an artificial conflict and worsens its isolation (Writer-journalist)

Wednesday, November 24, 2021 at 9:12 am Rabat – The frivolity of the Algerian regime is at the origin of the status quo delaying the settlement of the artificial conflict around the Moroccan Sahara and aggravates its political and financial crisis, while isolating it further from the people, said the writer-journalist, Talaâ Saoud Al Atlassi. In an article entitled “A frivolous regime which takes Algeria hostage” published on the electronic site “Machahid 24”, Mr. Saoud Al Atlassi noted that Algeria will be the only loser of the dilatory maneuvers of the regime and its mismanagement , recalling that the late Sovereign, the late HM King Hassan II, had already predicted the frivolity of the said regime, for decades, in a response to a French journalist who wondered whether Algeria’s immense oil resources represented a reason for concern for Morocco. And to continue that the late Sovereign had replied that “it would, of course, be normal for me to worry. But by noting the way in which the Algerian regime exploits the immense wealth at the disposal of the country, I am allowed to worry about the future of the Algerian people ”. Mr. Saoud Al Atlassi noted that this edifying response from the late HM King Hassan II is still relevant today, with the great frustrations that the Algerian people endure on a daily basis, among others, the deficiencies in basic necessities and the deficits. at the level of industrial and socio-economic infrastructure. He noted that all the maneuvers of the Algerian regime relying in particular on lobbying and the media in its pay against Morocco are, in the end, doomed to failure and on the contrary serve the interests of the Kingdom which has not need to provide the slightest effort in the face of this relentlessness. The writer-journalist cited, for example, the interview granted by the American Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, to the British channel BBC and during which the journalist challenged the US official with insistence, and on four occasions, on the recognition by the United States of America of the Moroccan character of the Sahara. In response, the US Secretary of State affirmed that the American recognition of the Moroccan Sahara is irrevocable, stressing that the US administration supports the efforts of the personal envoy of the UN Secretary General for a lasting and honorable settlement of this conflict. Mr. Saoud Al Atlassi indicated that all the maneuvers of the Algerian regime, relying on pressure groups within the American Congress and others, ended in total failure, recalling the statement of the American diplomacy at the end of an interview, in Washington, between the American Secretary of State, returning from an African tour, with his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita, who stressed that the bilateral partnership is long-lasting and resolutely enshrined in the framework of common interests in promoting peace, security and prosperity in the region. In this regard, he referred to the conventions signed on December 22 in Rabat, including, among other things, the American recognition of the Moroccan character of the Sahara, to the great despair of all those in the pay of the Algerian regime, adding that the communiqué of the American diplomacy was clear in reaffirming that the Moroccan autonomy proposal is serious, credible and realistic. And to conclude that the interview, last Monday in Washington, between MM. Blinken and Bourita confirms the last resolution of the United Nations Security Council and underscores the commitment of the American administration in favor of the efforts of the international community for the settlement of this conflict, under the aegis of the United Nations, in taking into account the Moroccan autonomy proposal.
