Sahara: Italian think-thank supports Morocco’s Autonomy Plan for stability of region
Morocco’s autonomy plan for the Sahara offers a lasting and realistic political solution which guarantees to the local Saharan inhabitants the collective and individual rights, said the Italian Centre for International Studies (Ce.S.I)
In an analysis on the Sahara regional conflict, the Centro Studi Internazionali said the autonomy initiative is propped up by ambitious socioeconomic development projects and backed by major Western countries including the United States, Italy, Germany, France…
This initiative should be the focus and the meeting point for all parties to the Sahara conflict, underlined the study, recalling the UN Secretary General’s appeal for “realism and a spirit of compromise” to move forward in the settlement process.
The supportive stands of Germany and Italy to the Moroccan autonomy plan will help to advance towards a lasting political solution and will strengthen the mission of UN envoy for the Sahara Staffan de Mistura, said the Italian center for studies on international relations.
During his latest tour to the region and consultations with the parties to the Sahara conflict, the opportunities offered by the Autonomy plan for an enduring resolution of the Sahara issue and stability of the region were discussed, added the Rome-based think-thank.
