Morocco: EU External Trade

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether the issue of Morocco’s compliance with UN Security Council resolutions on a referendum on self-determination were raised in discussions between the EU and Morocco on advanced status. (311123)

UN Security Council resolutions were not raised in discussions between the EU and Morocco on advanced status. The UK remains committed to a mutually acceptable political solution to the Western Sahara dispute, which provides for the self-determination of the people of Western Sahara. We continue to support the work of the Secretary-General’s Personal Envoy to Western Sahara, Christopher Ross, and his efforts towards building confidence between the parties.
