By on March 23, 2022

By backing the Moroccan autonomy initiative as “the most serious, realistic and credible basis for resolving the dispute” over the Sahara, Spain wants to contribute to resolving this issue that has lasted too long, Spanish Foreign Minister, José Manuel Albares said on Tuesday.

This decision aims to “contribute to ending a conflict that has lasted for over 46 years,” Albares said before the Spanish Senate, assuring that Spain has followed the lead of other world powers that have supported the Moroccan approach.

On March 18, Spain officially endorsed in a letter by the head of the Spanish Government Pedro Sanchez to King Mohammed VI Morocco’s Autonomy Plan as the most serious and credible solution to end the decades-long dispute.
