The Comoros are opposed to the transformation of European status of Mayotte


The Government of the Comoros'Union opposes the transformation of European status of Mayotte in Europe's outermost regions (ORs), a statement of the Ministry of Foreign Comoros (Mirex) dated November 2.
"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation regrets that once again, the offer of dialogue expressed by the Comorian authorities about the dispute between the two parties, Comorian and French on the island of Mayotte, towel so systematically one end of inadmissibility by the French Republic , "the statement said.
"The Union of Comoros will never abandon the legitimate demand of the people of the Comoros, which is in itself a principle of law," the statement said of Mirex.
Recall that the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, recently sent to the President of the European Council a formal request for transformation of the status of Mayotte European Countries and Territories Overseas Associate (OCT) in Outermost Regions (ORs).
However, the inviolability of borders, the basis of international law, has the full support of the United Nations, African Union, the League of Arab States, of the Islamic Conference, the Non-Aligned Movement and other regional and sub regional and friendly countries.
Note that Mayotte is located in the Comoros archipelago, which is also located in the Mozambique Channel. Mayotte consists of two main islands, Grande-Terre and Petite Terre, and several other small islands.
Following the referendum of the people of March 29, 2009, Mayotte has become an overseas department (DOM) in single deliberative assembly of the French Republic March 31, 2011, but the Comorian authorities have made a strong protest .
