Morocco Uncompromising on Sovereignty over Sahara Territorial Waters
Government spokesman Hassan Abyaba confirmed that Morocco has full right to assert sovereignty over its waters through enacting legislation accordingly governing its territorial waters.
Two draft laws have been approved by the foreign affairs committee at the Moroccan parliament pending official adoption by the Parliament’s two houses.
Moroccan media citing diplomatic sources said there is no backtracking in the submission of the two texts before MPs despite the fuss created by officials in the Canary Islands over fears for their own interests.
Morocco’s foreign ministry said in an earlier statement that the country is open to dialogue with neighboring states.
