AL spokesman Talat Hamid said in a statement on Wednesday that reports of the AL's involvement in this respect are groundless.
There were media reports that the AL has assigned a special committee to follow up developments in preparation for the Moroccan Sahara referendum, according to the Houston agreement signed between Morocco and the Polisario front with the mediation of UN negotiator James Baker.
