Spox rejects Moroccan FM claim over Iran’s support for Polisario

TEHRAN, May 02 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman has dismissed the Moroccan foreign ministry statement claiming that Iran financially and logistically supported Polisario Front.

In a Wednesday statement, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi rejected Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita’s accusations as “incorrect and unfounded.”

Ghasemi said “as in the contacts between the two countries’ authorities in recent days, Iranian authorities have rejected those allegations as unfounded and incorrect, I would like to clearly stress once again that one of the most important principles of foreign policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran towards other countries and states in the world is a deep respect for their sovereignty and security and non-interference in the internal affairs of others.”

Morocco's foreign affairs minister claimed on Tuesday that Rabat had evidence showing Iranian government had provided financial as well as logistical support to Polisario through its embassy in Algiers.

Moroccan government has announced it will cut diplomatic ties with Iran over those accusations.
