Sahara: Andean Parliament reiterates firm support for Autonomy Plan

The majority of the Andean Parliament has reaffirmed unwavering support to Morocco’s territorial integrity and autonomy plan offered for a lasting and peaceful solution to the Sahara regional conflict.

In a petition addressed to President of this deliberative body of the Andean Community, 15 MPs out of the 25-member regional organization called for the promotion of peace and stability, stressing the importance of dialogue in building consensus for enduring peace in the region.

They recalled the meeting held by the Andean Parliament in the Moroccan Saharan city of Laayoune in July 2022, with the participation of the Moroccan Speakers of the House of Representatives and the House of Councillors, a meeting which contributed to enhancing further dialogue and parliamentary cooperation between Moroccan lawmakers and their Andean peers.

This petition deals a hard blow to Speaker of the Andean Parliament, Colombian Senator Gloria Florez, a supporter of Algeria and its Polisario puppet.

Few weeks ago, Foreign Affairs Committee of the Andean Parliament rebuked Gloria for siding with Algeria and its Polisario armed militia, fuelling tension in the region and threatening its stability.

Morocco is an observer member of the Andean Parliament formed of 25 elected MPs, five from each of the five member countries: Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.

This regional body seeks to harmonize legislations among member countries, enhance regional cooperation and speed up integration of the Andean community for shared prosperity and progress.
