Western Sahara is rich in phosphates and fish. Once of primarily symbolic value, the territory's strategic value has been growing
@TheEconomist The Sahara was always part of Morocco your question sounds like who should control the South Wales? 🙄 Colononialism is the source of African conflicts
@TheEconomist After so many years, this looks like permanent theft by Morocco just as we are seeing increasingly on the West Bank by Israel and parts of Georgia and Ukraine stolen by Russia. So much for international law in the 21st century.
@TheEconomist In old days they would have got the tribes together and persuaded them to elect the King of M as the Premier Tribal Leader of Western Sahara. So separate but together. Now that 80% of population are from M, cannot see how this will end other than annexation or what I say above.
