Appearing on an Al-Jazeera talk show Thursday (1 September), he indicated Spain has a vital interest in the outcome.
Moratinos also hailed the release of the 404 Moroccan detainees, the appointment of a new Algerian ambassador to Morocco, the nomination of a new UN special envoy to Western Sahara, and recent reforms in Morocco.
