The European Union’s position on the issue of the Sahara is clear, and it strengthens Morocco in its position, although the Kingdom wants its European strategic partner to move forward, and in this follows Spain and Germany, among others.
According to the European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell Fontelles, “the EU’s position on Western Sahara – which reflects the common position that exists among its Member States – fully supports the efforts of the UN for a political process to: to achieve a just, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution to the problem … in strict accordance with the resolutions of the UN Security Council, and in particular Resolution 2602 (2021) “. It is worth highlighting” in particular Resolution 2602 (2021) “.
This statement, abbreviated with the sentence referring to Resolution 2602, was held up as a trophy yesterday, Monday 16 May 2022, by the official Algerian news agency, APS, which handed over the saliva to the sad bully Amar Belani so that he declares that this position, expressed by Josep Borrell, “contributes to reducing the campaign orchestrated by Morocco to revive its 2007 proposal for a futile attempt to circumvent and conceal international legality” (!).
And yet, on March 27, Josep Borrell said the same thing during an interview given to the Spanish press agency EFE, which asked him about the historic turning point that Spain had launched in the issue of the Moroccan Sahara, he was violently taken to task. of this same Amar Belani.
In this interview, Borrell categorically denied that the Spanish government’s change of policy towards Western Sahara is contrary to UN and EU regulations.
In response to him through an article he anonymously signed as a “diplomatic source” in the columns of the TSA (Tout-sur-l’Algérie), the real scribe (and false diplomat) wrote: “The crisis is bilateral and we have to do with Spain and not with the EU … We must not take the wrong register.Those who bear the direct responsibility for this crisis are those who must get involved and invest in overcoming it … It must also be said, “Madrid did not knock on the right door. Josep Borrell, a member of the Spanish Socialist Party by Pedro Sanchez, is disqualified from any views he may express on the issue.”
Borrell was disqualified yesterday, hailed today … for saying the same thing. And we are not at the end of our surprises, with a regime swaying with the currents and showing a dizzying inability to keep the same line.
In fact, in the same interview that had brought him insults from the barker at the end of his life in the junta, Borrell had said exactly what he is expressing today: “in the EU, we continue to say the same thing, ie that the conflict must have a solution within the framework of UN resolutions “.
Therefore, we do not understand why the junta rejoices to hear Josep Borrell say that the EU respects the resolutions of the UN Security Council on the Sahara when the same resolutions were rejected by Algeria because they support the resolution of the conflict on the basis of a realistic compromise, inseparably from the autonomy plan proposed by Morocco.
One would have thought that Josep Borrell was in favor of the Algerian theses on the Sahara, whereas in his remarks there is no reference to either the referendum or to self-determination. On this subject, the Algerian regime seems to have mourned these two “principles”, at least internationally, and uses them only for internal consumption.
Almost six months after rejecting it in a press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UN Security Council Resolution 2602, adopted on 30 October, has therefore become a benchmark for the Algerian regime. This is truly characterized by an isolated regime that has been lost in its bearings and is on its way back. This gives an idea of the speed with which the Sahara file is evolving and the way in which the Algerian regime has completely dropped. At this rate, we should not be surprised to see Algeria soon cited as a benchmark for the Western Sahara conflict … Neither more nor less than the autonomy plan proposed by Morocco!
