Sahrawi Ambassador praises Algeria’s support

Algiers, 15 August 2020 (SPS) - Sahrawi Ambassador to Algeria, Abdelkader Taleb Omar, praised on Wednesday the efforts of Algeria, leadership, people and political class, in favor of the Sahrawi cause and the right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination.

During the audience granted to him by the Secretary General of the National Democratic Rally (RND), Tayeb Zitouni, the Sahrawi ambassador said he "informed the party leadership of the latest developments in the Sahrawi cause which is beginning a decisive turning point."

This meeting stems from "our conviction that the partisan and popular support and rejection, loud and clear, of the policies that the Moroccan regime is trying to impose must be translated into programs and plans of support" to the cause, stressed the Sahrawi diplomat.

Taleb Omar welcomed the "understanding" and "support" he perceived in the leadership of the party, which he described as "friend of the cause ( ) with a certain experience in solidarity with the Saharawi people."

On the sidelines of the meeting, the Sahrawi diplomat said that "the Polisario Front will work to intensify actions of solidarity with the entire political class and civil society, so that the voice of the cause remains audible".

According to him, "it is necessary to draw inspiration from partisan experiences, especially in the field of political training and parliamentary diplomacy."

This requires, adds the Sahrawi diplomat, "more coordination with the Algerian political class," recalling that he "has made contact with several formations with a view to scheduling other meetings.

The member of the national secretariat of the Polisario Front said he was satisfied "with the national consensus in Algeria around the support of the Sahrawi cause."

The Sahrawi cause "which is at a decisive turning point, is facing the obstacles of the Moroccan regime and its attempts to change the status of the territory, which must enjoy its right to self-determination, in order to appropriate it," he lamented. (SPS)
