Algeria summons Moroccan ambassador over accusations of supporting Western Sahara separatists

April FrancisMay 04, 2018

The Foreign Ministry source emphasized that the principle of respect for the sovereignty of states is deeply embedded in the United Nations charter.

Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita said on Tuesday his country had evidence that Lebanese proxy Hezbollah was providing financial and logistic support to Polisario rebels through the Iranian embassy in Algiers.

"Qatar stresses the importance of respecting the principles governing relations between states, foremost among them respect for the sovereignty of states, non-interference in their internal affairs and the resolution of disputes through dialogue and peaceful means and internationally recognized methods", Qatar's Foreign Affairs Ministry pointed out in a statement released on Tuesday.

Iran Wednesday denied that it was involved in a weapons delivery via Hezbollah to the Polisario Front movement seeking independence for Western Sahara, after Morocco cut diplomatic ties with Tehran over the allegations.

The same source says it supports all measures taken by Morocco defending its "security and stability".

"It can not be said that Iran is not aware of all this", Khalfi said.

Hezbollah denied the allegations, saying Morocco was acting under American, Israeli, and Saudi pressure.

"Morocco's ambassador has been received today by the Secretary General at the foreign ministry who rejected the unfounded remarks", Algeria's foreign ministry said in a statement.

Saudi Arabia, Iran's regional rival, expressed its support for Morocco's decision in a foreign ministry statement, saying it "strongly condemns Iranian interference in Morocco's internal affairs through its tool, Hezbollah's terrorist militia, which is training the elements of the so-called Polisario group".
