Algeria: the two occupiers are in liaison
The Algerian Foreign Ministry says Morocco's step can in no way legitimize the occupation of the Saharawi lands, nor undermine the inalienable right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination.
In a statement by its Foreign Ministry, Algeria affirmed that "Israel's" recognition of Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara is evidence of "the alliance between the two occupiers".
Furthermore, the Algerian Foreign Ministry described "Israel's" statements in regard to Western Sahara as being a "flagrant violation of international law, and the resolutions of the Security Council and General Assembly".
"This act, issued by an occupation entity that has a record of violating international laws and resolutions, is the most recent episode of the Moroccan occupation's strategy of escaping forward ."
The Algerian Foreign Ministry added that the two occupiers have been proven to be complicit in how their policies are coordinated: They trample the rights of the Palestinian and Sahrawi people.
"This step, which is nothing more than publicizing the agreement [between Morocco and "Israel"], can in no way legitimize the occupation of the Saharawi lands, nor undermine the inalienable right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination in accordance with the resolutions of the United Nations and the African Union."
On July 10, the Moroccan Royal Office announced that the Israeli occupation recognized the sovereignty of Morocco over Western Sahara, state-run Moroccan news agency MAP reported.
According to the news agency, Moroccan King Mohammed VI received a letter from Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in which the latter announced "Israel's" decision to "recognize the sovereignty of Morocco over the territory of Western Sahara."
In his letter, Netanyahu indicated that the decision would be "transmitted to the United Nations, to regional and international organizations of which Israel is a member, and to all countries with which Israel maintains diplomatic relations."
Morocco is the fourth Arab state to formally normalize relations with "Israel" after Egypt, the UAE, and Bahrain.
Earlier today, Israeli media reported that Morocco's monarch, Mohammed VI, invited Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to visit the country after sending him a personal message thanking him for his government's recognition of Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara adding that the visit will "open new opportunities for strengthening the ties between our nations".
The king also stressed the importance of opening an Israeli consulate in the city of Dakhla which is located in the Western Sahara saying that Netanyahu's decision is "right and far-sighted."
Israeli media outlets report that the head of the Israeli National Security Council, Tzachi Hanegbi, and the Moroccan Foreign Minister, Nasser Bourita, agreed to set a date for the Israeli Prime Minister's visit to Morroco.
