MFA Nasser Bourita: Morocco's Position on Separatists' Leader Reception in Tunisia Remains Unchanged
Mr. Bourita said, in a statement to the media from Cairo, that the Moroccan position remains "the one expressed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates in its statement of August 26th, 2022, and shared by all the Moroccan people and all its forces".
According to Mr. Bourita, the Arab League’s Secretary General, Mr. Ahmad Abu El-Gheit's reference to settling the Morocco-Tunisia dispute "relates exclusively to a paragraph whose insertion was proposed by the Tunisian delegation, and which Morocco has categorically rejected".
He also explained that Mr. Abu El-Gheit's reference came during his press briefing following the end of the 158th session of the League's Council. The involvement of several sister Arab countries, including Jordan, has led to a compromise text, which refers to cooperation between Japan and Arab countries, without mentioning the TICAD Summit.
