Jordan highly valued, in New York, the Moroccan initiative for autonomy, the “practical, logical and serious solution” to settle the regional dispute over the Sahara, stressing its unwavering commitment to supporting the sovereignty of the Kingdom.

Speaking during the annual meeting of the 24th Committee of the United Nations, the representative of Jordan, Ahmed Samir Habashneh, highlighted that the autonomy plan takes into account the specificities of the region, the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Morocco over its lands, and its territorial integrity, in line with the Charter of the United Nations.

Ahmed Samir Habashneh said that his country’s inauguration of a consulate general in the city of El-Ayoun was an affirmation of Jordan’s firm position in support of Morocco’s territorial integrity and its commitment to work together to solve the Moroccan Sahara issue by international legitimacy resolutions.

The diplomat also praised the efforts of the Personal Envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General for the Sahara, Staffan de Mistura, aimed at relaunching the political process, under the supervision of the Secretary-General, to reach a realistic and lasting solution to the Sahara issue, based on international law and relevant Security Council resolutions.

On the other hand, the Jordanian diplomat touched on the well-established strategic relations that link his country with Morocco, which are based on continuous cooperation and close coordination at all levels, noting that these distinguished historical relations provide a model for relations between Arab countries, based on the foundations of achieving common interests and goals, in the service of the development of peoples. and Arab issues.
