Madrid (Spain), 03 August 2021 (SPS) - The delegate of the Frente POLISARIO in Spain, Abdulah Arabi, has addressed the recently appointed Director General for the Maghreb, Africa, Mediterranean and the Middle East, Alberto José Ucelay Urech, to convey its concern "at the brutal wave of repression exercised against the Saharawi civilian population by the Moroccan authorities in the occupied areas of Western Sahara."

For the Sahrawi representative, the current situation requires an "urgent intervention by the Government of Spain to demand from the Moroccan government the immediate cessation of this violence and that the protection of the Saharawi population and respect for International Humanitarian Law be guaranteed."
