Morocco's Royal Court said the United States will open a consulate in the Western Sahara as part of its deal to secure US recognition for Moroccan sovereignty over the territory.
The US president also "recognized Moroccan sovereignty over the entire Western Sahara territory," the White House said in a statement.
Trump issued a proclamation formalizing the new US position and tweeted that "Morocco's serious, credible, and realistic autonomy proposal is the ONLY basis for a just and lasting solution for enduring peace and prosperity!" in Western Sahara.
