The Commonwealth of Dominica reaffirms its support for Morocco’s sovereignty over the Moroccan Sahara


The Commonwealth of Dominica reaffirmed, Monday in Rabat, its support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Kingdom of Morocco over its entire territory, including the Moroccan Sahara.

This position was expressed in a joint communiqué published following talks between the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans living abroad, Nasser Bourita, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Affairs , Commerce and Energy of the Commonwealth of Dominica, Vince Henderson.

In this Joint Communiqué, Mr. Henderson reiterated his country’s support for the autonomy initiative, presented by the Kingdom in 2007, as the only credible, serious and realistic solution for the resolution of the dispute around the Moroccan Sahara.

In this regard, he welcomed the efforts of the United Nations as the exclusive framework to achieve a realistic, practical and lasting solution to this regional dispute.

As a member of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), the Commonwealth of Dominica welcomed the opening of an OECS Embassy in Rabat (18 October 2018) and a Consulate General in Dakhla (March 31, 2022), which will certainly represent a great opportunity to further consolidate bilateral trade between the Kingdom of Morocco and the six states of the Eastern Caribbean, underlines the Press Release.
