Sahrawi government criticizes Moroccan king's speech, considers it refusal to comply with international legality

Shahid El Hafed, 22 August 2021 (SPS) – The Sahrawi Government criticized on Saturday in the strongest terms, the speech of the King of Morocco, describing it as "headlong rush and refusal to comply with international legality".

In a statement made public by its spokesperson, the Saharawi Government criticized the speech of King Mohammed VI delivered on Friday, on the so-called the "Revolution of the king and the people", as well as "intransigence based on the policy of headlong flight by exposing the region and its security to more tension and instability, in light of the return to war in Western Sahara, of which Morocco, especially under the reign of the current King Mohammed VI, is the main cause.

"By doing so, it has undermined the efforts made by the international community for more than thirty years," the same source said.

The Government denounced the discourse that "has been marked by more rejection, intransigence and insistence on not complying with international legitimacy and the implementation of its decisions by allowing the Saharawi people to exercise its right to establish its sovereignty over all its territory.

In its statement, the Saharawi government added that the king of Morocco "tried to mislead internal public opinion, explaining that it was a major plot being plotted against his country".

The Saharawi Government and the Polisario Front reaffirmed their attachment to the inalienable and imprescriptible legitimate right of the Saharawi people to self-determination and independence, as well as their determination to "defend at all costs the national objectives". (SPS)
