Nacer Bourita, the disappeared « diplomat »

Nacer Bourita, the Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation

Nacer Bourita, the Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, one of the men of Mohammed VI, known for his rhetorical speeches and false promises to expel the SADR from the African Union, has suddenly disappeared from the national and international scenes.

The disappearance or absence of the head of the Moroccan diplomacy is closely linked to some facts and information. The most prominent reason of this disappearance would be the failure of the Moroccan thesis regarding the Western Sahara conflict, on the international scene.

For the Moroccan side, joining the African Union after more than three decades of absence, aimed mainly to: 1- Expel the SADR. 2- Neutralizing the African Union and precluding it to play any role in the process of the decolonization of Western Sahara.

Nacer Bourita, who joined Moroccan diplomacy in 1992, has never stopped to use unfair methods to legitimize the Moroccan military occupation of Western Sahara, for instance: preventing the SADR from participating at Maputo Partnership Summit between the African Union and Japan and the opening of consulates by some African countries in the occupied territories of Western Sahara.

Moreover, with the support of some European far-right MPs, Bourita tried to stopp the humanitarian aid destinated to the Sahrawi people. Hopefully, this plan also failed after that the European Union, the World Food Program, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees denied this false information.

On the other hand, the Makhzen has initiated an unfounded campaign against the symbols of the Algerian State like civil and military institutions, through the media and the statements of Moroccan diplomats such as the former Consul of Morocco in Oran.

In addition, the head of the Moroccan diplomacy failed to manage the repatriation issue of Moroccan expatriates during the Coronavirus Covid-19 crisis. More than 30.000 Moroccan were prevented from returning to their country, despite of several protests organized in front of Moroccan Consulates and Embassies.

The inefficiency of Bourita’s policy and his disastrous management begat dissatisfaction amid the authorities in Rabat, this is why his expulsion is expected.
