National Secretariat denounces implicating African countries in assaults against Sahrawi people

Shaheed Al-Hafed, January 11, 2020 (SPS) -  The National Secretariat of the Polisario Front on Friday denounced implicating some African countries by the Moroccan occupier in committing direct assaults against the Sahrawi Republic by opening the so-called consulates in the occupied cities of Western Sahara, which represents a flagrant violation of the Constitutive Act of the African Union.

In a statement culminating its founding session following the 15th congress of the Polisario Front, chaired by President of the Republic, Secretary General of the Polisario Front, Mr. Brahim Ghali, the National Secretariat of the Polisario Front expressed the intention of the Sahrawi Republic, a founding member of the African Union, to take all political and legal steps to ensure respect for the sovereignty of the Sahrawi people over their land and the legal status of Western Sahara as an occupied country in the process of decolonization.

In assessing the relationship with the United Nations, the National Secretariat of the Polisario Front confirmed the content of the letter of the President of the Republic, Secretary-General of the Polisario Front to the President of the Security Council dated 28 December 2019, which contained the clear practical conditions that the United Nations should provide to restore the lost confidence of the Sahrawi people as a necessary step for the success of the new Personal Envoy in his mission.

In this regard, the National Secretariat stressed that the Sahrawi people has run out of patience after 30 years of passive waiting, the most prominent features of which were arrogance and disregard by the Kingdom of Morocco, with the inability and failure of the United Nations to fulfill its original commitment, namely the application of the agreement signed between the two parties to organize a self-determination referendum.
