The Polisario attacks France after the declarations of its ambassador in Rabat supporting the Moroccan character of the Sahara

The Polisario Front, a separatist movement, attacked France and its ambassador in Rabat, who previously affirmed the Moroccan character of the Sahara and its support for the Moroccan initiative to grant the southern provinces autonomous status under full sovereignty of the Kingdom.

The Polisario described the French ambassador's statements as “danger” and condemned them in the strongest terms, adding that France is the main obstacle to the international community's efforts to find a solution in the region.

The accusations of the Separatist Front against France came in a press release published yesterday in response to statements by the French ambassador in Rabat, Christophe Lecourtier, during a conference organized by the Faculty of Law, Economics and Social Sciences – Rabat Agdal, on the theme “Franco-Moroccan relations: issues and perspectives”.

The French ambassador said his country had supported Morocco since the start of the conflict in the Sahara, having armed it and even intervened militarily against the Polisario Front. He also pointed out that France had supported Morocco at the United Nations when it was isolated, and that it had been one of the first nations to support the autonomy initiative.
