Sahrawi people expect action from Security Council to get Morocco to respect international legitimacy

Oran, May 2, 2016 (SPS) - Prime Minister Abdelkader Taleb Omar said Sunday, in Oran, that the Sahrawi people are expecting an action from the United Nations (UN) Security Council to get Morocco to respect the international legitimacy.

The Sahrawi people are waiting for a resolution of the Security Council to extend the mission of MINURSO (The United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara), responsible for the organization of self-determination referendum for the Sahrawi people in front of Morocco’s obstinacy and its expulsion of this mission’s staff, he said on a press conference.

“We are peace and not war partisans. We just do not abandon our right to independence and we will use all legitimate means to defend this right without concealing the return to the armed action,” he said.

While broaching the measures to be taken in this regard, the Prime minister underlined that the Sahrawi Liberation Army decided on a plan on its preparation for any eventuality and the organization of manoeuvres to assess its military capacities.

“The strength of the Sahrawi people lies in their willingness and determination for their right to live,” he stressed. (SPS)
