Frente POLISARIO’s Representative in Paris calls on France to reconsider its support for Morocco

Paris, Dec  09, 2021 (SPS) - The Representative of the Frente POLISARIO in France, Mr. Mohamed Sidati, called on France to “reconsider its policy of support for the occupying Moroccan state in its illegal occupation of Western Sahara and to take advantage of his presidency of the European Union (EU) next semester to guide the efforts of the European bloc towards the sincere and serious search for a just and peaceful solution to the conflict in Western Sahara ”.

Speaking during an official meeting of the Study Group on Western Sahara in the French Parliament, Sidati said that “France, which will preside over the European Union (EU) for the next semester, will have to re-examine its disastrous and damaging policy of support for the Moroccan occupation, since it is negatively affecting their relations of cooperation and friendship with the Maghreb region ”.

The Saharawi diplomat also added that "the best contribution that France could make during its presidency of the EU is to guide efforts to find a just and lasting solution to the conflict in Western Sahara, in accordance with international legality." SPS
