Pierre Boisselet – Special Envoy to Nouakchott – jeuneafrique.com
African Union Commission Chairman Moussa Faki Mahamat on Sunday presented a long-awaited report on the conflict between Morocco and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) in Nouakchott. He advocated the creation of an African mechanism that, however, would not replace the efforts of the United Nations.
It was probably the most anticipated document of the 31st African Union (AU) summit, which was presented this Sunday, July 1, in Nouakchott. Commission President Moussa Faki Mahamat presented a seven-page report to the delegations present to relaunch the peace process between Morocco and the Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic. This text should be studied on Sunday, July 1.
It is based on a series of interviews conducted in recent months. On the one hand, with the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI, and his Foreign Minister (in Rabat, 5-6 June); on the other hand, with the President of the SADR, Brahim Ghali, and his Foreign Minister (in Tindouf, June 19 and 20). But also with Algerian Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia and his foreign minister (11-12 March) and with Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdelaziz at the end of March.
