Sahara: Djibouti supports political solution under UN-exclusive process
The government of Djibouti has reaffirmed its strong backing to Morocco’s territorial integrity and to a negotiated political solution to the Sahara issue under the exclusive aegis of the United Nations.
The stand was voiced Tuesday by Djibouti’s foreign minister Mahmoud Ali Youssouf during talks he held remotely with Moroccan peer Nasser Bourita.
Rabat thanked this African country for its supportive stand and opening of a Consulate General in Dakhla, in February 2020.
During this virtual meeting, the two ministers discussed cooperation prospects and praised the strong friendship and solidarity ties existing between the two countries’ governments, people and Heads of State, King Mohammed VI and President Ismail Omar Guelleh.
The two top diplomats agreed to strengthen partnership in education, vocational training, investment, renewable energy, fisheries and seafood processing, tourism, Islamic affairs, civil protection, air transport and justice.
They signed an agreement setting up a joint cooperation committee tasked with the follow up of the implementation of joint projects to be launched by the two countries.
They also agreed on the exchange of experiences in diplomatic training and other several fields of common interest.
