Guerguarat: Saudi Council of Ministers reiterates support for measures taken by Morocco

Saudi Arabia has reiterated its support for the measures taken by Morocco to ensure free civil and commercial movement in the buffer zone of Guerguarat in the Moroccan Sahara.

The Saudi Council of Ministers held this week under the chairmanship of King Salman Bin Abdulaziz, condemned “any practices threatening free movement at this vital crossing linking Morocco and Mauritania.”

Last Saturday, following Morocco’s military intervention to secure traffic at Guerguarat, the Saudi Foreign Ministry expressed its “condemnation of any practice that threatens movement in this vital crossing between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Islamic Republic of Mauritania”.

The Saudi Foreign Ministry called for “restraint and non-escalation in accordance with the resolutions of international legitimacy.”

Besides Saudi Arabia, all the other Gulf Cooperation Council members expressed backing to Morocco’s decision to respond with serenity, firmness and professionalism to the disruptive provocations made by the Algeria-backed separatists threatening peace and stability in the region.
