Andean Parliament reaffirms support for Morocco’s position on Sahara
The Andean Parliament reaffirmed its steady position in support of Morocco’s sovereignty over the Sahara as it rebuked the blunder of one of its speakers who derailed from that position at a meeting in Algiers.
The Andean Parliament’s foreign affairs committee made it clear that its Speaker gave her own personal statement on the Sahara issue at the 17th OIC parliamentary union in Algiers.
Morocco is an observing member of the Andean parliament, which was created in 1979 with headquarters in Bogota. It entered into force in January 1984.
The Andean Parliament has since 2018 formally supported Morocco’s territorial integrity and unity and backed the Kingdom’s efforts to settle the conflict over its southern provinces, the Sahara.
The final statement of the the 17th OIC parliamentary union has also condemned the anti-Morocco resolution adopted by the European parliament
The Andean parliament is the governing and deliberative body of the Andean Community. It was created by virtue of the Constitutive Treaty signed by the chancellors of Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. The process of Argentina’s membership is underway.
