Morocco Gleaned Necessary Backing for Return to AU, Algerian PM

Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal has acknowledged that Morocco has gained the necessary backing for its return to the African Union (AU).

The Algerian top diplomat conceded that Morocco’s return to the AU has become inevitable, as it has secured the necessary votes from the majority of African countries.

Speaking at a press conference held lately ahead of Africa-France summit in Bamako last weekend, Sellal said:  “Morocco has secured its reintegration into the African Union, even before the upcoming summit due in Addis Ababa at the end of current January.

Last July, King Mohammed VI announced his country’s decision to rejoin the African organization in a letter addressed to the 27th AU summit held in Rwanda.

Following the royal letter, 28 African member countries out of 54 tabled a motion welcoming the Moroccan decision, noting that the North African country is one of the founding members of the AU’s predecessor, the Organization of African Unity (OAU.)

They also called for the immediate suspension of the membership of the self-proclaimed RASD, which was illegally admitted in 1984 through the illegitimate use of threats, deceit, coercion and dirty petrodollar money.
According to several analysts, Morocco’s reintegration into the African Union is just a matter of time and formality because the large majority of African countries have overtly expressed backing to Morocco’s readmission in the AU saying that the African continent will be stronger, safer and better with Rabat on board.
