Moroccan King Delivers Speech On 69th Anniversary Of The Revolution Of The King And The People

Rabat, August 21 (TNA) King Mohammed VI on Saturday delivered a speech to the Nation on the occasion of the 69th anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People. The monarch in his speech said that the day illustrated the bonds of affection and attachment between a king, who preferred exile to bargaining over the nation's unity and sovereignty, and a people, who made immense sacrifices to ensure the return of their legitimate king and to regain freedom and dignity.

With the same spirit of sacrifice and solidarity, we managed to achieve the nation's territorial integrity through the recovery of the Kingdom's southern provinces, he further pointed out. “Over the last few years, there have been many major accomplishments at the regional and international levels regarding the Kingdom's just and legitimate stance on the Moroccanness of the Sahara” he added

A number of influential states have expressed support for the Autonomy Initiative within Morocco's full sovereignty over its territory as the only solution to this artificial regional dispute and the firm position of the United States of America has been a source of real motivation – a position that is not affected by a change of Administration, nor is it influenced by new circumstances, the King underlined.

He also commended the “clear, responsible stance of Spain, our neighbour that is well aware the origins and the reality of the dispute”. This positive stance, he pointed out, has paved the way for a new chapter in the Moroccan-Spanish partnership – a chapter that is not affected by regional circumstances or by domestic political developments.

The constructive position regarding the Autonomy Initiative adopted by a number of European countries – which include Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Serbia, Hungary, Cyprus and Romania - will contribute to ushering in a new era of trust-based relations, and will help strengthen the qualitative partnership with these friendly countries, he further said in his address.

At the same time, nearly thirty countries have opened consulates in our southern provinces, thereby confirming their clear support for the Kingdom's territorial integrity and the Moroccanness of the Sahara, the ruler said.
