(MENAFN) The Moroccan government rejected the possibility of a settlement on the decades-long conflict over the Western Sahara region unless there was "engagement" by Algeria.
Government spokesman Mustafa al-Khalfi stated Friday "a solution to the Western Sahara dispute cannot be envisioned without genuine engagement by Algeria, which is largely responsible for the continuation of the dispute."
The statement by the government spokesman has been made during a government-organized conference in the Moroccan city of Marrakesh on the Western Sahara dispute.
Moroccan government officials, academics and civil society activists were said to be joining the three-day conference.
