Polisario Front submits to Guterres following Morocco's deliberate provocations in Alguergarat

New York, Feb 26, 2017 (SPS) -The Polisario Front has informed the UN Secretary General Antonio Guteress of the risks resulting from stalemate in the peace process and the fraught situation prevailing in the buffer zone of Alguergarat.

Representative of the Polisario Front Ahmed Boukhari held talks Friday at the UN headquarters with the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, to whom he handed a message from Sahrawi President Brahim Ghali on the dangerous deadlock in the UN process since many years, Sahrawi representation in New York told APS Friday.

The stalemate maintained by Morocco has been exacerbated by the fraught situation in Alguergarat area where Morocco seeks to build a road crossing the territories controlled by the Polisario Front. This is an infringement of the peace process.

The Sahrawi party warned against "Morocco's deliberate and planned provocations" in the sensitive region located at borders with Mauritania.  

Morocco will assume the responsibility of any escalation in Alguergarat.

This is the second appeal made by the Polisario Front to the UN within three days. The Polisario Front urges the UN to relaunch the peace process which stopped in 2012 and avoid any escalation in Alguergarat zone.m (SPS)
