Joint Statement: Liberia Renews Support for Morocco's Sovereignty Over Sahara

The Republic of Liberia reaffirmed, on Thursday in Rabat, its support for Morocco's territorial integrity and sovereignty over all its territory, including the Moroccan Sahara.

This position was expressed in a joint Communiqué issued following talks between Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita, and Liberian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sara Beysolow Nyanti.

In the joint communiqué, Nyanti reiterated her country's support for the autonomy initiative put forward by the Kingdom in 2007, as the only credible and realistic solution for resolving the dispute over the Moroccan Sahara.

In this regard, she welcomed the efforts of the United Nations as the exclusive framework for achieving a realistic, practical and lasting solution to the dispute over the Moroccan Sahara.

Welcoming this decision, Bourita thanked the Liberian side for its constant and firm support to the territorial integrity of Morocco, especially its clear position in favor of the Moroccan Sahara, throughout its actions on the ground by the opening of the Liberian Consulate in Dakhla on March 2020 and its participation on January 15, 2021, in the Ministerial Conference in Support of the Initiative of Autonomy under the Sovereignty of Morocco, at the invitation of the Kingdom of Morocco and the United States of America.

Nyanti also emphasized the role of the Kingdom's southern provinces as a major African hub, calling for the experience of these provinces to be used as a basis for drawing up and implementing a development policy for the whole of Africa.
