“I would not mind if Spain contributes to the search for an agreement accepted by all the parties to the conflict, mainly Algeria and Morocco, which would recognize the autonomy of the Sahara under Moroccan sovereignty”, observed the Spanish diplomat, assuring that Algeria is obviously “stakeholder” in this artificial conflict around the Moroccan Sahara.

In this context, Javier Rupérez stressed the importance of dialogue, especially between Morocco and Algeria, to definitively close this file.
