US appreciated Morocco’s unilateral withdrawal of troops from Guerguarat
The governments of the United States, France and Spain welcomed Morocco’s decision to unilaterally withdraw from the southernmost area of the Saharan provinces on the borders with Mauritania known as Guerguarat in a bid to deescalate tensions with the Algerian-based Polisario separatists.
Morocco’s foreign ministry explains that the withdrawal of troops from the buffer zone beyond the security wall was ordered by King Mohammed VI, Supreme Commander and Chief of General Staff of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR). The move also came following phone talks between the King and UN Secretary General António Guterres.
In this respect, the US embassy in Rabat welcomed in a statement Morocco’s move to appease tensions in the region by retreating its forces from the buffer strip in Guerguarat.
