Václav Klaus for the Moroccan News Agency about Western Sahara

English Pages, 24. 3. 2022

How do you read Spain’s new position as regards the dispute over the Moroccan Sahara?

I take it as a serious step forward. The inhabitants of Western Sahara deserve a permanent solution of this conflict, which must be based both on existing realities and on meaningful proposals. Any other solution than keeping the Western Sahara territory inside Morocco means the denial of the status quo. That would be destructive and extremely costly for all sides.

Don't you see that after the United States, Germany, France and Spain, the EU should get out of its current posture and recognize the Moroccanness of the Sahara, in order to help promote the settlement of this dispute?

I am the last one who would dare and have ambitions to give any advice to the EU authorities. They should listen to their member states and shouldn’t come up with their own constructivist solutions.

What is Czechia's position on this issue?

The Czech Republic doesn’t have – as far as I know – at this very moment a specific position on this issue. We support the ongoing negotiations under the auspices of the United Nations.
