Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Peter Szijjártó, reiterated on November 15 in Rabat his country’s support for the Moroccan Autonomy Plan.
This position was expressed by the Hungarian Minister during a press conference following his talks with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita.
“We believe that the Autonomy Plan presented by Morocco is a promising basis to resolve the conflict over the Moroccan Sahara per the relevant United Nations resolutions,” stated the head of diplomacy of Hungary, a country “extremely conscious” of the issues of territorial integrity and respect for the sovereignty of States.
The Hungarian minister also recalled that his country is committed to supporting the Moroccan Autonomy Plan in international forums, citing in particular Hungary’s recent intervention at the European Union’s (EU) Court of Appeal on this issue.
The Hungarian official affirmed that his country will maintain this supportive position for the Autonomy Plan.
Szijjarto also emphasized Morocco’s role as a key player and partner for Hungary in promoting peace and stability in the region and Africa, noting that the Kingdom boasts a strong policy in the fight against irregular migration.
