El Salvador has decided to withdraw its recognition of the so-called “SADR”, Salvador’s Government said in a statement at the weekend. “The Government of Salvador informs the Government of the Kingdom of Morocco of its decision to withdraw its recognition of the SADR and sever all ties with this entity,” the Salvadoran government pointed out in a joint statement signed by Morocco’s minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita, and his Salvadoran counterpart, Alexandra Hill Tinoco, in the presence of President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele.

“The decision will be communicated to the United Nations and the other relevant regional organizations,” the statement added. “El Salvador’s government supports the territorial integrity and the national sovereignty of the Kingdom of Morocco, as well as its autonomy initiative that represents the only possible solution to this regional conflict,” it said.

Also at the weekend, the government of Chile expressed its full support to the autonomy plan offered by Morocco to reach a realistic, viable and definitive political solution to the regional dispute over the Sahara.
