Lebanon backs Morocco’s sovereignty over Sahara – The North Africa Post
Lebanon said it supports Morocco’s territorial integrity and unity and rejects all separatist entities, reads a joint Moroccan-Lebanese statement.
The statement was released following talks between Moroccan foreign minister Nasser Bourita and his Lebanese peer FM Abdallah Bou Habib on the sidelines of the 9th Alliance of Civilizations forum held in Fez.
Habib voiced satisfaction at the excellent bilateral ties with Morocco and recalled the lofty initiatives spurred by King Mohammed VI to bring a helping hand to Lebanon following the blast that devastated Beirut’s port in August 2020 as well as the field hospital deployed by Morocco to help the Levant country during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Bourita, for his part, reiterated Morocco’s support for the unity, stability and sovereignty of Lebanon as well as its backing for the efforts of the Lebanese government to keep the country at bay of regional political and military conflicts.
He also called for the activation of the high-ranking joint committee to be revived as soon as possible in order to keep pace with international transformations.
Bourita stated that Morocco supports a consensus among all components of Lebanon in order to complete the constitutional process and elect a new president to move forward with economic reforms and social reforms.
He said that Morocco welcomed the US mediation of the southern Lebanese border delineation agreement. This is a move that will help to improve the country’s economy.
