Calvin Dark: Dialogue stratégique Maroc-USA — un partenariat solide et des perspectives prometteuses

“Aujourd’hui plus que jamais, les menaces au #Sahel et le manque de coopération de la part de l’#Algérie dans les efforts de préservation de la région nécessitent des partenariats stratégiques (le #Maroc et les #ÉtatsUnis) qui s’engagent véritablement à donner la priorité à la sécurité.”

Décision du tribunal de l’UE: Prétendre que le #polisario représente les Sahraouis est «cynique et hypocrite» (analyste américain)

“Il est incroyablement cynique et hypocrite que le polisario fait croire faussement en Europe représenter la voix des #Sahraouis. C’est bien au #Maroc que les Sahraouis ont une vraie voix et l’ont fait entendre librement lors des élections marocaines tenues il y a moins d’un mois.” – Calvin Dark
