The Moroccan diplomatic representation in New York delivered to all the member countries of the Non-Aligned Movement an official note whose content formally enshrines the commitment of the Kingdom of Morocco in a hostile campaign against Algeria, through a public and explicit support to an alleged “right to self-determination of the Kabyle people” who, according to the said statement, would suffer “the longest foreign occupation.”
This double allegation is an acknowledgement of guilt regarding the multiform Moroccan support currently given to a known terrorist group, as was the case with the support to the terrorist groups that bloodied Algeria during the “black decade.”
This Moroccan diplomatic statement is adventurous, irresponsible and manipulative. It is a short-sighted, simplistic and vain attempt to an outrageous combination between a decolonization issue duly recognized as such by the international community and which is only a plot directed against the unity of the Algerian nation.
The statement directly attacks the principles and agreements that build Algerian-Moroccan relations. It constitutes a flagrant violation of international law and the Constitutive Act of the African Union. Algeria strongly condemns this dangerous slip-up, including for the Kingdom of Morocco within his internationally recognized borders. In the situation created by a dubious diplomatic act committed by an ambassador, Algeria, a sovereign and indivisible Republic, has the right to expect a clarification from the Kingdom of Morocco on this very serious incident.
