Washington recognizes Morocco’s sovereignty over the Sahara according to Jeune Afrique


The Algerian power has suffered a bitter snub with the American recognition of Moroccan sovereignty over the Sahara, affirms the magazine Jeune Afrique,

In an article sent to its subscribers in preview yesterday, Tuesday, September 7, 2021, the pan-African magazine believes that the Algerian authorities know perfectly well that they have suffered a serious setback, even a stinging snub, with the decision of the Trump administration which was confirmed by that of Joe Biden.

“As for Morocco, its diplomacy is perfectly aware that a boulevard has opened before it and that other countries – several European states, including Poland, France and perhaps Spain – will end up aligning themselves on the American decision, or at least will favor Morocco’s position within the UN, “underlines Jeune Afrique.

In this article, the pan-African magazine also looks back on the appointment by the United Nations of a new special representative for the Sahara, also head of Minurso, the Russian Alexander Ivanko, “seasoned diplomat”, who already knows the file “on the tip of the fingers”.

Algeria, underlines Jeune Afrique, “traditionally supported by the Russian Federation, cannot challenge it”, even though “discussions took place in April 2021 between the Moroccan ambassador in Moscow, Lotfi Bouchaâra , and Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin “. In addition, explains the Pan-African magazine, “things are already changing”, as the Kingdom “is now Russia’s third trading partner”.
