The American administration has not commented yet on Trump’s recognition of Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara, said spokesperson of the US State Department who requested anonymity on Monday.

“No such decision has been made. We are conducting consultations especially with the parties on the best way forward, and we have nothing more to announce,” said the spokesperson to the U.S. channel Al-Hurra, denying the information reported by the U.S. website Axios, according to which the Biden administration would have maintained the decision of former President Trump at least for the moment.

Axios, which claimed to reveal an exclusive announcement, said that during a telephone conversation, Head of the U.S. diplomacy, Antony Blinken, would have informed his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita, that the Biden administration would not reverse this recognition at least for the moment.
