Freedom principle must be ensured to all African peoples including people of Western Sahara

Algiers, 14 November 2021 (SPS) - South African Minister of international Relations and Cooperation Naledi Pandor affirmed Saturday that Algeria and South Africa know too well the meaning of freedom, adding that this principle “must be ensured” to all the African peoples (…), including the people of Western Sahara.

In a statement to the press after being received by Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, at the headquarters of the Presidency, Pandor said that “Algeria and South Africa could play key roles in the African continent given their struggle against the occupation and their common history. They know too well the meaning of freedom (…) that we enjoy today and that we must convey to all the African peoples.”

“We wish the Palestinian and Sahrawi peoples freedom and self-determination, and we must work within the African Union to achieve them for all the African peoples,” she underlined.
