Algiers, April 26, 2016 (SPS) - The Speaker of the People’s National Assembly Mohamed Larbi Ould Khelifa reiterated Monday Algeria’s unchanging position about the conflict in Western Sahara and its “conviction about the fairness of this cause which benefits from an ongoing support following the diplomatic successes recognized by several European Parliaments.”

Ould Khelifa underlined in an audience granted to the Speaker of the Sahrawi National Council Khatri Addouh, “Algeria’s support to the right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination dictated by the faithfulness to the principles of the glorious revolution,” according to a communiqué of the People’s National Assembly.

He said that Algeria “follows an independent foreign policy and is not, consequently, submitted to any pressure or blackmail.”

The two officials examined “the latest developments of the Sahrawi issue and assessed the diplomatic action aimed at obtaining a greater support at the international level.”SPS
