Boumerdes (Algeria), August 5, 2018 (SPS) - President of the Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), Secretary General of the Polisario Front Brahim Ghali said Saturday; in  Boumerdes (50-km east of Algiers), his satisfaction with the ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), which confirm that Western Sahara and Morocco are two different countries and that no agreement with Morocco can include the territory of Western Sahara and the adjoining waters.

In an address at the opening of the ninth Summer Conference of the executives and members of the Polisario Front and the Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) opened Saturday in Boumerdes, Algeria under the slogan "the 45th Anniversary of the Polisario Front, Oath and Continuity for Independence and self-determination," President Ghali expressed satisfaction with the successive franc and clear decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).

The European Court's rulings "uphold a series of similar decisions and recommendations by the United Nations and the African Union, confirming that Western Sahara and Morocco are two different and separate countries."

"No agreement with Morocco can include the territory of Western Sahara and the adjoining waters," said the Saharawi leader citing CJEU's ruling.

"The rulings of the Court of Justice of the European Union show clearly that such practices are a direct violation of the right to self-determination," Ghali said, criticizing "the attempts made by certain parties within the European Union (EU) to carry on regardless of those rulings."

"It is a violation of the European law, the international law and the humanitarian law," the Saharawi president stressed. (SPS)
