By Majid Morceli San Francisco - The latest UN resolution has vividly shown who are Morocco’s friends and enemies, as well as who is interested in keeping the conflict alive for eternity. Moroccan observers have been stunned by the Russians’ decision to vote for the UN resolution, assuming that the latest visit by the Moroccan king to Russia assured Russian backing on the North African kingdom’s sacred cause. What these analysts failed to take into account is that Russia cannot afford to upset Algeria, which has been one of its most profitable military clients for decades. While Morocco can also be a lucrative business for the Russians and a useful intermediary between Russia and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), given Rabat’s latest disagreement with the United States, they may not see it wise to align themselves with a country with a long history as a US ally, which will alienate the Algerian regime, a sure and reliable ally. Moroccans do not understand the reason the United States refuses to go all out and support Morocco, a country that has been a strategic and staunch ally of the United States for decades and always supported the Americans regardless of the consequences. What Moroccans need to know is that the United States will only fully and unequivocally support one country and one country only and that is the state of Israel, but that's another topic. The United States still supports the Moroccan autonomy proposal, a proposal that Ban Ki-moon wants to do away with. The US Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, said after the vote, “The policy of the United States regarding Western Sahara has not changed. We consider Morocco’s autonomy plan serious, realistic, and credible. It represents a potential approach that could satisfy the self-determination aspirations of the people of Western Sahara.” Morocco should focus on coming up with ideas to earn more support for the autonomy proposal, instead of focusing negatively on the debate between France and the US about the duration that the civilian section of MINURSO needs to return to full functionality. Even though the US sees their interests first and foremost, Morocco cannot afford to lose the backing of the US. What the US did with the latest UN resolution is indirectly signal to Morocco that it is unpleased with its attempt to get closer to the Russians and that, for these efforts, there would be consequences. The Russians proved the Americans right by not voting for the UN resolution. Morocco thought that a simple visit by the Moroccan king can change Russia's relationship with Algeria. Morocco relies heavily on other countries for help in its sacred cause; this has to change. It is time for Moroccans living in the Sahara to start defending their cause. Many of the Polisario leaders who have returned to Morocco advised that, unless Sahraouis take matter into their own hands, the problem will never get solved. Morocco needs to speed up regionalization and investments recently announced by the Moroccan king in order for the inhabitants of the Sahara to start believing that Morocco is serious about changing the status quo. The strategic alliance between Morocco and the GCC should serve as a golden opportunity to bring the king’s proposals to fruition and turn this relationship into a win-win situation for both sides. The GCC will profit from the return on their investments and Morocco would benefit from making the Sahara the gate of world investment in Africa. Making the Sahraouis the stakeholders in their day-to-day lives can accomplish more than support or lack thereof from any outside country. More importantly, Sahraouis in Tindouf will no longer be satisfied living in camps under a dictatorship and will eventually rise up and start demanding to join their brothers and sisters in Morocco’s southern provinces. © Morocco World News.

Swansea secured their Barclays Premier League status as a weakened Liverpool side suffered a 3-1 defeat before their European showdown with Villarreal. Andre Ayew's brace took him into double figures for the season and Jack Cork added a beauty as Swansea, 2-0 ahead at the interval, ended a run of five straight defeats to Liverpool and claimed four successive top-flight home wins for the first time since 1982. Christian Benteke, on as a substitute, gave Liverpool hope with his ninth goal of season, but defender Brad Smith's dismissal 14 minutes from time for two bookable offences ended the comeback. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp obviously had the Europa League semi-final second leg with Villarreal on his mind as he made eight changes from the side which had lost the first game in Spain on Thursday. Only Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren and Philippe Coutinho remained and Swansea, one point from safety at kick-off, took advantage of the unfamiliar Liverpool line-up to clinch a sixth straight season of top-flight football. This was Liverpool's first game on British soil since an inquest ruled on Tuesday that 96 of their supporters were unlawfully killed at Hillsborough in Sheffield 27...

The death toll from a collapsed six-storey building in Nairobi has risen to 16 from 12, the Kenya Red Cross said, but officials declined to be drawn on how many more people might be still under the rubble. The 198-room building in Huruma in eastern Nairobi collapsed on Friday night after heavy rain and rescue work is continuing. President Uhuru Kenyatta, who visited the site of the collapse, told officials "to undertake an immediate survey of all the houses in the area to find out those which are at risk of collapsing". He also ordered the arrest of the owners of the building, which had been condemned by the authorities. "Those people who have died in Huruma have died an unnecessary death. That death is a product of corruption. And that is what we must fight in Nairobi," legislator Johnson Sakaja said during Labour Day celebrations in the capital. The Kenya Red Cross said in a statement 16 deaths had been confirmed and 135 people injured and treated for their injuries. "Search and rescue operations are ongoing to rescue survivors that may still be trapped under the rubble," it said. Neither the Kenya Red Cross nor the National Disaster Operation Centre - which is leading the...

Bulgarian lawmakers have backtracked on a blanket ban on opening polling stations outside of Bulgaria's diplomatic missions to other countries. Under the new rules approved on Thursday afternoon, the restrictions will not be in force for the territory of the EU where there are embassies or consulates. In EU countries where no diplomatic missions of Bulgaria are present, stations will be opened where at least 100 Bulgarian nationals have submitted an inquiry. In non-EU countries (such as the US, Canada, Russia, and Turkey), polling stations can also be opened outside embassies, but only a single station located in cities whose population is bigger than 1 million if there is no diplomatic mission of Bulgaria in the respective city. MPs modified the controversial Electoral Code amendment following mass protests from Bulgarian communities abroad. The Patriotic Front, a nationalist coalition that has no ministers in the cabinet but backs the governing minority coalition, was adamant a restriction to the number of missions would curb the influence of voters in Turkey, where tens of thousands of Bulgarian nationals have traditionally cast ballots in favor of the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (DPS), with some now possibly switching to the new DOST party. However, Bulgarians living in Western Europe or the US, whose combined number outweighs those in Turkey, said the move restricted their options to cast a ballot, especially in light of another decision by Parliament which made voting compulsory. Vast sections of the new amendments, including a ban on publishing results of opinion polls throughout an election campaign, sparked outrage from the public, prompting emergency talks of political leaders with Prime Minister Boyko Borisov to discuss possible concessions. On Thursday, the last workday of the week as Orthodox Easter holidays begin the next day, lawmakers had fervent discussion on election laws being in a hurry to pass all the required texts of the electoral code. It was the opening of polling stations abroad, rules for holding referendums, and the implementation of voting with electronic machines that raised tensions among lawmakers during and following a meeting of the Legal Affairs Committee around noontime. A number of lawmakers objected to the decisions of the committee whose report had been submitted to the floor of Parliament, claiming that the committee had held no session over the past few days. According to Parliament Speaker Tsetska Tsacheva, the mysterious committee meeting had been held before 10:32 local time on Thursday morning - the moment it was tabled. The holding of any session at the Legal Affairs Committee was contested by MPs from both the opposition and parties that are in or back the cabinet.
