Speaker of the Parliament of the Andean community Fernando Meza expressed support for Morocco’s territorial integrity and for the Kingdom’s efforts to settle the conflict over the southern provinces, the Sahara.
Fernando Meza made the remarks following talks with Morocco’s lower house speaker Habib El Malki.
He noted that his visit to Morocco is meant to manifest the solidarity of the Andean parliament.
For his part, El Malki lauded the Andean position in support of Morocco’s sovereignty over the Sahara.
He also recalled that ties between the Moroccan and Andean parliaments date back to 1996 and have been developing since then with the Kingdom becoming an observing member at the Andean institution.
The Andean Parliament is the governing and deliberative body of the Andean Community. It was created on October 25, 1979 in La Paz (Bolivia), through the Constitutive Treaty signed by the chancellors of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela. It entered into force in January 1984.
