SADR Ambassador to Algeria calls for further mobilization against UN inaction in face of Moroccan occupier’s violations

Algiers, 5 July 2020 (SPS) - Ambassador of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) to Algiers Abdelkader Taleb Omar accused the United Nations of inaction and indulgence in the face of the violations, by the Moroccan occupier, of the agreements signed between the two sides (Polisario and Morocco), calling for further mobilization to take up the challenges facing the Sahrawi people in their struggle for self-determination.

The Sahrawi ambassador, also a member of the Secretariat General of the Polisario Front launched this call in a meeting that he chaired with the staff of the Sahrawi embassy in Algeria, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the death of El Mahfoud Ali Biba.

In this respect, he affirmed that the evocation of the qualities of the latter and all the Sahrawi martyrs is meant to be an opportunity to renew the oath to “our martyrs and take up the challenges facing us in our decisive struggle against the Moroccan occupation, despite the national gains achieved in terms of building the Sahrawi State and its institutions, in addition to the international recognition of the fairness of our cause and of the Sahrawi people’s right.”

While broaching the UN peace process in Western Sahara, Taleb Oamr denounced firmly the inaction, the indulgence and silence of this international organization in the face of the Moroccan violations of the agreements signed between the two sides to the conflict (Morocco and the Polisario Front), without neglecting the fact that MINURSO, as a ceasefire monitoring mechanism, doesn’t carry out any role in the basic issues (political, legal and human rights), given the status of the territory which is a decolonization issue.

The Sahrawi diplomat also broached the position of Spain which hinders, he pointed out, the decolonization process in Western Sahara by shirking its historical responsibility towards the Sahrawi people. (SPS)
