Western Sahara: Italian Parliament Friendship Intergroup on same wavelength as Algeria

Rome (Italy), 11 March 2016 (SPS) - Italian Parliament Intergroup for Friendship with Western Sahara People said it is "on the same wavelength" as Algeria, wishing a quick solution to Saharawi, and which, it stressed, is incumbent on the United Nations.

 

"The Parliament Intergroup that I chair is on the same wavelength as Algeria, which is a neighbour of the two parties to the conflict, in supporting a solution based on self-determination of Western Sahara people," Stefano Vaccari has stressed.

 

The MP also said that the Italian intergroup is in agreement with "President Bouteflika's message in which he urged for a quick solution to Western Sahara question and reiterated the responsibility incumbent on the United Nations in this respect."

 

Vaccari expressed "wish that the latest statements of President of the Republic Abdelaziz Bouteflika do not remain as coming from a lone voice".

 

"We hope that after Algeria, other countries will back and support UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's proposal to reset direct talks between Morocco and the Polisario Front," the Italian Democratic Party's senator stressed. (SPS)
