“We welcome the positive position of the United Kingdom on the Moroccan Sahara and its constructive role in the UN Security Council, as a member of the group of friends of the Secretary-General on the Moroccan Sahara and a permanent member of the Council, which follows with interest the security and stability in North Africa,” said Bourita during a press briefing, at the end of the 4th session of the Moroccan-UK Strategic Dialogue, which he chaired, alongside the Minister of State for the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia and the United Nations of the United Kingdom, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon.
