Sydney, Australia, April 01, 2021 (SPS) - The Australian Labor Party called on the United Nations to organize a self-determination referendum without delay in Western Sahara.

In a motion on Western Sahara approved during the party's congress held virtually on March 30 and 31, the Australian party said that it “strongly supports the efforts of the United Nations for the Sahrawi people to exercise their inalienable right to self-determination, in accordance with the UN resolutions and the 1991 Peace Plan, as promised ”.
