Sahara: Benin Supports Political Solution & UN Efforts

Benin supports a political resolution to the Sahara issue and the exclusive role of the United Nations as a consensual framework seeking to reach a final settlement to this regional conflict.

In a joint statement issued following the 6th meeting of the High Morocco-Benin Cooperation Committee convened Monday in Marrakech under the co-chairmanship of foreign minister Nasser Bourita and his Beninese peer Aurélien Agbenonci, the two diplomats hailed the convergence of the two countries’ visions on regional & international issues and voiced willingness to work together for a stable, developed and prosperous Africa.

The ministers also stressed the importance of regional integration for the development of inter-African trade and investment, saying that the reinforcement of South-South cooperation facilitates integration and speeds up the socioeconomic development in Africa.

The joint committee agreed to boost cooperation between Morocco and Benin in the fields of justice, energy, Islamic Affairs, civil protection, youth & sports, scholarships, vocational training, road safety, and international road transport.
