(MAP) Rabat - The Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Integration and Chadians Abroad, Cherif Mahamat Zene, reaffirmed Friday, December 10, 2021 in Rabat, the position of his country on the primacy of the role of the United Nations in settling the regional conflict over the Moroccan Sahara.

At a press briefing, following his talks with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates, Mr Nasser Bourita, the Chadian Minister said that his country called on the Personal Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for the Sahara, Staffan de Mistura, "to revive the talks process under the Security Council resolution 2602.’’

For his part, Mr Bourita welcomed the constructive stance of the Republic of Chad on the Moroccan Sahara question, recalling that this African state had withdrawn its recognition of the so-called ’’sadr" in 2006.

He also emphasized Chad’s support for the African Union’s (AU) positive approach to this artificial regional conflict.

The Minister stressed that his talks with his Chadian counterpart were also an opportunity to coordinate the positions and views of the two countries on several issues relating to West Africa, the Sahel region, and the CEN-SAD.
