Algeria recalls its special envoy to Morocco over Western Sahara
The Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the move was related to the comments made by Morocco’s UN special envoy on the Kabili region in Algeria.
The Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has recalled its ambassador to Morocco and hinted that further measures may be taken to deal with the recent outbreak of tensions between neighboring countries in North Africa over the disputed territory of Western Sahara.
Moroccan special envoy to the United Nations Omar Hilal (Omar Hilal) said that this move is in line with the Moroccan special envoy to the United Nations Omar Hilal (Omar Hilal) in Algeria’s Kabyli region (Kabylie Algeria-supported Polisario Front.
At a meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement, Hilal called for “the people living in the Kabili region to enjoy the right to self-determination” to refer to the Tamaztian-speaking minority in Algeria.
He once suggested that Algeria should not deny this while supporting the self-determination of Western Sahara.
The Polisario Front is fighting for the independence of Western Sahara, which was a Spanish colony until the mid-1970s and is now mainly occupied and managed by Morocco.
Since the early 1990s, the land border between Algeria and Morocco has been closed due to security issues, intensifying the friction between Algiers and Rabat, and the relationship between the two countries has deteriorated due to the conflict.
