Tebboune’s speech comes shortly after his meeting with Polisario Front leader Ibrahim Ghali at Al-Mouradia Palace and a closed session of the UN Security Council on the peacekeeping mission in the Sahara. During these meetings, which also included senior military leaders such as the Commander of the Algerian Army, Saeed Chengriha, and the Commander of the Sahrawi Liberation Army, the focus was on strengthening relations and coordinating efforts.

Algeria is now trying to persuade countries that have expressed their support for Morocco’s plan for autonomy in the Sahara and opened consulates in southern cities such as Dakhla and Laayoune to move away from Morocco.
