American delegation’s visit to occupied al-Aaiun, simple “propaganda touristic tour”

Algiers, 10 January 2021 (SPS) - Minister Counsellor for Public Affairs at the Presidency of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) Bachir Mustapha Sayed underlined Sunday that the visit paid Saturday by a delegation of the outgoing American administration to occupied al-Aaiun is “a simple propaganda touristic tour.”

The visit of an American delegation to the occupied Sahrawi territories is only a simple “touristic tour of propaganda organized by the Moroccan tourist guide for an administration whose term of office will end within less than two weeks,” he said. 

The visit of this delegation, in less than 15 days from the installation of the new US administration, confirms the confusion in which the outgoing president’s administration is, leading it to attack the Sahrawi and Palestinian peoples, international law and also the values of the USA and their institutions, said Bachir Mustapha, also a member of the National Secretariat of the Polisario Front.

This delegation confirmed during its recent visit to Algeria “the unchanging position” of this country vis-à-vis the Sahrawi issue, namely the decolonization issue which could be resolved only through the implementation of the international law, according to the doctrine of the United Nations (UN) and the African Union (AU), he added.

“This farewell visit comes at a time when the new administration has announced the successor of David Schenker and the appointment of a new envoy to the Middle East and North Africa, known for his support to the liberation issues,” he underlined. (SPS)
