Tanzania has voiced support for Morocco’s position on the ongoing dispute over the Western Sahara region, according to a joint statement issued by the Tanzanian and Moroccan governments.

The Tuesday statement, which was carried by Morocco’s official press agency, explained that Tanzania’s stance was based on "the principle of reconciliation and the need for a permanent solution" to the decades-old dispute.

Tanzania also expressed its readiness to help implement past UN resolutions on Western Sahara.

According to the statement, Tanzanian President John Magufuli has voiced his country’s support for UN efforts to reach a "just, permanent and viable solution" acceptable to all parties involved.

In late October, Moroccan King Mohammed VI paid a three-day visit to Tanzania -- the second leg of a larger East Africa tour -- during which the two countries signed 22 cooperation agreements.
