The King of Morocco agrees to "find a way out" in his relationship with Algeria


The King of Morocco, Mohamed VI, announced this Saturday that he is committed to "finding a way out" in the country's relationship with its neighbor Algeria.

"We assure our firm will to find a way out of the current situation and promote rapprochement, communication and understanding between the two peoples", explained Mohamed VI, referring to Algiers, in his speech on the occasion of the 23rd anniversary of the Festival of the Throne, in which he mentioned the COVID-19 pandemic, women's rights or the economic situation.

Thus, the monarch has indicated that the border with Algeria "will never be barriers that prevent interaction and understanding." "Our wish is that these borders become bridges that allow Morocco and Algeria access to a better future and offer a good example of harmony to the other peoples of the Maghreb", he added.

Finally, Mohamed VI extended his hand to the Government of Algiers: "We aspire to work with the Algerian presidency so that Morocco and Algeria can work, hand in hand, to establish normal relations between two brother peoples, united by history, ties humans and a community of destiny".

The Government of Algeria announced the rupture of diplomatic relations with Morocco in August last year, alleging a host of circumstances, among which it has cited the lack of progress in resolving the open dispute over Western Sahara, in which Algiers is ally of the Polisario Front.

Immediately afterwards, Morocco described as "unjustified" the rupture of diplomatic relations announced by the Government of Algeria, in a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in which Rabat reported that it took "note of the unilateral decision of the Algerian authorities".

"Morocco regrets this completely unjustified but expected decision, in view of the logic of the escalation observed in recent weeks," it added.

Likewise, he "categorically rejected the fallacious, even absurd, pretexts that underlie the Algiers decision", although he stated his intention to continue "being a credible and loyal partner for the Algerian people".
