Saharawi Government calls for saving negotiation process in Western Sahara

Shaheed El Hafed, 13 Nov 2016 (SPS) The Saharawi government has called on the UN Secretary-General and world leaders attending the summit of the climate conference in Marrakech to save the process of negotiations led by the United Nations to find a just and peaceful solution to the conflict in Western Sahara.

The Kingdom of Morocco, which hosts the summit, violates international law and occupies by force parts of the territory of the Saharawi Republic (SADR), recalled a statement of the ministry of information, stressing that "purification of climate and fight against pollution are inseparable from peace and end of hostilities in order to establish law and eliminate injustice and tyranny".

According to the Sahrawi Government, the holding of such an international conference, under the auspices of the United Nations, "is an opportunity to intervene with the Kingdom of Morocco to bring it into conformity with the requirements of international legitimacy to respect internationally recognized borders and fully cooperate with the efforts of the United Nations and to stop its flagrant violations of human rights against the defenseless Saharawi citizens and the plundering of the natural resources of Western Sahara. "

The Saharawi Government issued an urgent appeal to the UN to assume its responsibilities in the decolonization of Western Sahara, the last colony in Africa, by accelerating the implementation of the UN / OAU peace plan signed by the parties (Polisario Front and Kingdom of Morocco) and approved by the UN Security Council to enable the Saharawi people to exercise their inalienable right to self-determination and independence.
