Granada – Moroccan Foreign minister Taib Fassi Fihri on Sunday denounced the blockade imposed on Moroccans held against their will in Tindouf camps (southwestern Algeria).

At a press conference following the first Morocco-EU summit on March 6-7 in Granada (southern Spain), Fassi Fihri also condemned the banning of UN organizations from conducting a headcount to know if the population, held for over three decades, are there willingly or against their will.

The minister stressed that this population held against their will in the camps are deprived of the basic rights, such as the right to an ID, free movement, free speech and the right to hold meetings.

Morocco’s autonomy proposal is an ideal solution for the artificial conflict over the Moroccan Sahara, considering that the Sahara population welcomed the initiative, he said.

The minister went on to say that some media outlets focus on the stances of a small group which plays the card of human rights while serving a “political agenda”.

Prime minister Abbas El Fassi represents Morocco at the first Morocco-EU Summit, along with an important ministerial delegation.

The delegation includes Foreign minister Taib Fassi Fihri, Economy minister Salah Eddine Mezouar, National Education minister Ahmed Akhchichine, Agriculture minister Aziz Akhannouch, Industry, Trade and New Technologies minister Ahmed RĂ©da Chami, Foreign Trade minister Abdellatif Maazouz, State Secretary to the Interior ministry Saad Hassar and Secretary General to the Foreign ministry Youssef Amrani.
