N3, Internasional - The Green March, which is the largest peaceful march in the world, is a "soft victory" that "testifies to the foresight of the late SM Hassan II," said the president of the Association of Indonesian Independent Journalists (PPWI - Persatuan Pewarta Warga Indonesia), Wilson Lalengke.*_
"The late King Hassan II had taken care in the details of the preparations for the famous Green March, which is a real sweet victory and a testament to the far-sighted vision of the late Sovereign," said Lalengke in an interview with MAP on the occasion of the celebration of the 42nd anniversary of the Green March.
Through the organization of this peaceful protest, the Kingdom has made history and won the respect of the international community, he added.
The Indonesian journalist has, in addition, qualified Fire SM Hassan II a true "leader of exception" and "man of genius" who brilliantly managed the largest peaceful demonstration in the world, despite a conjuncture difficult.
"The late Sovereign showed extraordinary leadership and made history," he said with satisfaction, considering that this grandiose march exemplifies the perfect example of a seamless union between a Visionary King and a people driven by an unwavering desire to liberate the southern provinces from the Spanish occupation.
He praised this symbiosis between a King and a people convinced of the sovereignty of the Kingdom over its southern provinces and who firmly believe in their great national cause.
"In my opinion, the Green March is a very good example to express the will of a people, a nation and a king who are fighting together, by peaceful means, to ensure the territorial integrity of the country in the world, full respect for human rights," he insisted.
And to add that the achievements made by the late SM Hassan II were largely perpetuated and consolidated by His Majesty the King Mohammed VI, who showed active solidarity with Africa, while remaining attached to the synergistic partnership with Europe.
"His Majesty King Mohammed VI was able to preserve and consolidate the various achievements made during the reign of His late father, by repeatedly reaffirming the African vocation of Morocco and its commitment to the continent," said Mr. Lalengke, recalling the "historic and revealing" speech delivered by the Sovereign in Dakar on the occasion of the 41st anniversary of the Green March.
The Indonesian journalist, who had already visited Morocco, welcomed the great progress made in several sectors of activity, saying that the country does not hesitate to share its know-how and experiences with several sub-Saharan countries.
With regard to the Moroccan plan of autonomy in the southern provinces, Mr. Lalengke said that this proposal constitutes an "adequate solution" to the artificial conflict around the Moroccan Sahara.
"Through its plan of autonomy, Morocco makes an adequate and concrete contribution to solve the problem of artificial conflict around the Moroccan Sahara and thus participates in the maintenance of peace and security in the region," he stated.
In the same vein, he welcomed the efforts made by Morocco to significantly reduce security threats to the region and preserve its stability. **Nadia El Hamar
