European parliamentary groups ask Baiden to cancel Trump's statement

Bern (Switzerland), Feb 02, 2021 (SPS) - Several European parliamentary groups have asked the President of the United States, Joe Baiden, to cancel the proclamation made by his predecessor and which recognizes the alleged sovereignty of Morocco over Western Sahara, as well how to work to recover the United Nations process in Western Sahara.

In this sense, the Swiss parliamentary group, who has coordinated the initiative, said in a press release made public today that “180 European parliamentarians have expressed their deep concern over the negotiation made by Trump in exchange for their country's recognition of the alleged Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara ”.

On the other hand, the parliamentarians emphasized the need to find a solution to the Sahrawi-Moroccan conflict, which must be through respect for the right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination, calling the attention of the US president to the suffering caused by this long conflict that takes more than forty-five years.
