This is how Tunisian President Said accumulated hostile positions on the issue of Moroccan Sahara

Tunisia was never on Rabat’s side in dealing with the question of the Moroccan Sahara, neither at the fateful moments nor during the normal management of the file. This is evident during the discussion of the Security Council reports, where the “Republic of Carthage” often takes vague positions contrary to Rabat’s ambitions.

It is known that Tunisia abstained from voting in favor of the UN Security Council resolution that extends the work of the MINURSO mission for another year; The followers of the Sahara file related it to the political rapprochement between the “Al-Muradia Palace” and the “Palace of Carthage” in the recent period, and Tunisia’s “acquiescence” to the Algerian regime.

Tunisia, before Kais Saied came to power, had adopted a policy of traditional neutrality in the Moroccan Sahara file with a kind of political rapprochement with Algeria. But in the recent period, he has tended to support the secession thesis, to which some have responded in the economic and security talks that brought Algeria and Tunisia together.

The statement from the Tunisian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, issued in response to its Moroccan counterpart, after Kais Saied received the leader of the “Polisario”, shows that the Tunisian side is convinced of its escalation steps. Rabat.

Algerian-Tunisian coordination has increased during the recent period, especially in some regional archives; Like the armed conflict in Libya and Mali, and allowing citizens of both countries to cross without a visa.

Muhammad al-Tayyar, a researcher on security issues, said that after coming to power in Tunisia, Qais Saied took many measures that surprised, destroyed all the relations that linked Tunisia with the outside and opened the door to harm the economic interests. and state politicians.

Al-Tayyar stressed that what Qais Said did by receiving the leader of the “Polisario” separatist militias is another manifestation of the weakness and weakness that Tunisia has become, and constitutes a dangerous and unprecedented act, which will have consequences and negative repercussions for him and for him. Tunisia.

The researcher considered the issue of security, in statements to Hespress, that this reception will cost Kais Saied a strong political and economic loss due to this dangerous slip, contrary to the will of the international community to close the file on the Moroccan Sahara issue. .

The same spokesman underlined that Kais Saied is behind the Algerian military regime, to try to get out of its worsening internal crisis, and this will only increase weakness and weakness; The military regime used it brazenly to respond to the royal discourse, which turned the Moroccan Sahara issue into a prism of Morocco’s relations with others.

Muhammad Al-Tayyar said that Qais Saied’s behavior makes no difference to Morocco’s progress in its efforts to close the file on the Sahara issue, in light of the explicit consensus of the Arab countries on the unity of Morocco, and not constitute any event in the course of Morocco as a regional power that constitutes a political, economic and military center in Africa, and a prominent axis in international balances.
