Marrakech – The U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, here on Tuesday, that there is no change in the United States’ position over Morocco’s autonomy initiative for the Sahara, which the US described on several occasions as “serious” and “credible”.
“I don’t want anyone in the region or elsewhere to have any doubt about our policy which remains the same,” Clinton said in an interview with MAP and TV channel Al Oula.
Recalling that Moroccan-American relations go back to more than 220 years, Clinton said the American position was “reaffirmed in the Bush Administration and it remains the policy of the United States in the Obama Administration.”
The US Secretary of State had participated in the sixth Forum for the Future in Marrakech and was received Monday by HM King Mohammed VI in the southern city of Ouarzazate. MAP
