If we take into consideration the 19th century events, within a strategic and historical context, then we can’t overlook the arbitrariness of the borders in the Sahara region.
Thereon, with the discoveries of natural resources, and especially in the hydrocarbons sector, it is not surprising that the situation has become even more artificial during the 20th century, in regards to the border demarcations.
As a result we’ve seen countries arise, which haven’t a history of their own, and that for them it’s even easier to believe that everything could be negotiable, as for them nothing regarding the past is substantial.
However we could be forgetting the existence of countries enhanced with history which represents a milestone with a duration of centuries in the Sahara region.
Therefore, if we’ll be looking for opportunities in the future, it would be important for them to be based on the historical past.
Consequently, it is quite natural for Western Sahara to opt for a Moroccan vision.
As the Moroccan civilisation constitutes a substance in this historic region.
There are certainly envy and desires on the part of some neighbours, but they merely don’t obtain the required background.
Therefore, it is wiser not to be always on the defensive, and to take constructive initiatives which allow for structures and infrastructures capable of creating a future to develop, in order to consequently protect freedom.
It isn’t merely regarding an international political and or geopolitical game, but actual fact, regarding the recapture of historic positions.
So, if Western Sahara obtains a Moroccan vision, then that is quite natural for its evolution.
Because what’s most important is justice, and the strategic sustainability, in order for it to be adopted and so to prevail, as it costitutes the sole concern of the population.
