Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Expatriates Mr. Nasser Bourita said on Monday 4th of May 2020, at the Online Summit of the Contact Group of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) that a neighboring country continues to feed separatism and divert the resources from its population for acts of regional destabilization.

In a speech delivered by videoconference on behalf of his country to the Summit of the Contact Group of the Non-Aligned Movement, Mr. Bourita said that “it is unfortunate that even during these particular circumstances, some countries continue feeding separatism, acting against the founding principles of NAM”.

This country, instead of using its resources to improve the precarious situation of its population in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, diverts them to fuel regional destabilization, he added, with reference to Algeria’s bringing up the question of the Moroccan Sahara during this meeting.

As a reminder, the Non-Aligned Movement is the second-largest platform globally in terms of country membership after the UN. It currently has more than 120 members.
