His Majesty King Mohammed VI received a letter from the Prime Minister of the State of Israel, His Excellency Mr. Benyamin Netanyahu.
With this letter, the Israeli Prime Minister brought to the Most High Attention of His Majesty the King the decision of the State of Israel to recognize the sovereignty of Morocco in the territory of Western Sahara.
In this regard, the Israeli Prime Minister said that this position of his country will be reflected in all relevant acts and documents of the Government of Israel.
He also stressed that the decision will be transmitted to the United Nations, to regional and international organizations of which Israel is a member, as well as to all countries with which Israel has diplomatic relations.
In his letter to the Sovereign, the Israeli Prime Minister informed that Israel is positively examining ‘the opening of a consulate in the city of Dakhla as part of the implementation of this state decision.
It is important to underline that the Israeli decision recognizing the Moroccanness of the Sahara constitutes a great victory for the Kingdom, given that it consolidates international support for the territorial integrity of the Kingdom of Morocco.
It adds to the very favorable dynamic created thanks to the Clairvoyant Vision and the Royal Impulse, these last years, namely the American recognition; the support for autonomy by more than 15 European countries, including Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria; the opening of 28 consulates of African, Arab and Latin American countries in the Saharan provinces.
This decision is likely to facilitate and encourage Israeli and international investments in the Southern Provinces of the Kingdom.
