Five Caribbean states withdraw recognition of the SADR

 

Rabat, 16 August – (ANA) - The Caribbean states of Grenada, Antigua and Barbados, Saint Kitts, Nevis and Saint Lucia decided to withdraw recognition from the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), according to a statement of the Moroccan Foreign Ministry.

The withdrawal decisions were officially announced in joint statements issued at the end of visits paid to these countries by Morocco’s foreign minister Taïb Fassi Fihri on August 9-13.

During a recent working visit to Morocco, the Dominican Republic’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit also decided the withdrawal of his country’s recognition to the SADR.

The decision of the five Carabbean state’s withdrawal of recognition from the SADR fall within the framework of the willingness of these countries to endorse the ongoing negotiation process under the auspices of the UN aimed at finding a political solution to the Western Sahara issue.

The issue has marred relations between Morocco and Algeria for over three decades and has prevented a united Maghreb. (ANA)
