Polisario Front will never accept any approach that deviates from the UN-African settlement plan (President of the Republic)

Bir Lahlou (Sahrawi Republic), 14 October 2022 (SPS) - The President of the Sahrawi Republic and Secretary-General of the Polisario Front, Mr. Brahim Ghali, today sent a letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Antonio Guterres, including the Sahrawi position on several elements contained in the Secretary-General's last report concerning the situation in Western Sahara.

The President of the Republic and the Secretary-General of the Polisario Front expressed once again the Sahrawi authorities' deep denunciation of the complicit and unjustified silence of the General Secretariat of the United Nations and its unjustified reluctance to call things by their true names and to hold the Moroccan occupation state accountable for the consequences of its documented violation of the ceasefire of 1991 and the continuation of its aggressive action against the Sahrawi people .

The President of the Republic recalled the decision of the Polisario Front of October 30, 2019 to reconsider its participation in the peace process as a whole and its affirmation that it would never accept or support any approach that deviates from the settlement plan accepted by the two parties or seeks to bypass the legal nature of the recognized Western Sahara issue by the United Nations as a decolonization issue.

In conclusion, the President of the Republic affirmed the commitment of the POLISARIO Front to contribute to a peaceful, just and lasting solution to the decolonization of Western Sahara in accordance with the principles of international legality and relevant United Nations and African Union resolutions and on the basis of the mandate for which the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara was established (MINURSO).
