Under the title “Peru and Morocco, a relationship marred by ideological factors”journalist Ricardo Sánchez Serra indicates that President Boluarte has not yet repaired the damage caused by her predecessor to relations with Morocco, noting that it is up to her to take an urgent decision in this direction, far from ideological considerations which have always damaged international relations.
“The ghostly SADR” is a chimerical entity devoid of the conditions and foundations allowing it to be considered as a State according to international law, underlines Mr. Sanchez who is also vice-president of the Federation of Journalists of Peru.
This puppet entity is not a member of the United Nations and the settlement of the Sahara issue remains the responsibility of the UN, he continues, noting that Peru’s traditional position has always been that of neutrality. positive.
By restoring relations with a fake entity, Peru would be playing ” Russian roulette “ to torpedo traditionally good relations and thwart Morocco’s territorial integrity, the journalist believes, blaming this deterioration of relations in particular on the former president deposed by Parliament and imprisoned for conspiracy and rebellion, for purely ideological reasons , against the very interests of Peru and to the detriment of good relations with Morocco.
How can a self-respecting country recognize a ghostly entity, withdraw its recognition and then recognize it again, wonders the author of the article, wondering if this is the image that Peru is trying to present in the world.
Mr. Sanchez notes that the Security Council has supported the Moroccan autonomy plan for the Moroccan Sahara for more than 15 years, qualifying it as “serious, realistic and credible”.
At a time when several States throughout the world are expressing their recognition of the Moroccanness of the Sahara, in particular the United States and Israel, and when the Moroccan autonomy plan is garnering support from influential countries such as Spain, in addition to the opening by dozens country of Consulates in the cities of Laayoune and Dakhla, Peru rows against the tide, he laments.
The daily notes in this regard that Morocco had nevertheless clarified things: friendly countries are those which respect its territorial integrity and support its national cause, stressing that the Kingdom is a very influential country on the Arab and African level, an ally of the West and a stable and democratic state in the region, recognized internationally for its foresight and its effectiveness in the fight against terrorism.
Will Peru take the initiative to repair all this damage and celebrate next year the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with the Kingdom, wonders the journalist who notes that, apart from this fact, the more important is that Morocco deserves all respect.
