Washington – The White House has welcomed Morocco’s decision to re-admit Aminatou Haidar on humanitarian grounds “with full respect for the rule of law”, a White House official said Friday.

“Throughout this episode, we advocated for the return of Ms. Haidar to Morocco based on humanitarian grounds with full respect for the rule of law,” he told MAP, adding that this decision is “reflective of the true spirit and generosity of the Moroccan people.”

He also said that “this specific incident reinforces the urgency of finding a permanent solution” to the Sahara conflict.

“In that spirit, we urge all parties to re-enter negotiations in the UN context under the leadership of the UN Secretary-General’s personal envoy, Christopher Ross, as soon as possible, and to avoid actions that make it more difficult for those negotiations to succeed,” he underlined.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday welcomed Morocco’s decision to re-admit Aminatou Haidar on humanitarian grounds.
