POLISARIO calls on UN Security Council to assume its responsibilities towards Morocco provocations in Elgaragarat region

New York, October 7, 2016 (SPS) - POLISARIO Front Representative to the UN, Ahmed Boukhari, indicated Thursday that the Security Council must assume its responsibilities towards the provocations of Morocco in the region of Elgaragarat, in his speech before the IV Committee of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

He stated that Morocco continues to violate the charters of the UN and the African Union and as a challenge to the international organization "expelled in March the political and civil component of MINURSO, it denigrated the UN Security Council, it refuses to resume direct negotiations between the two parties."

Bukhari affirmed that the Sahrawi people will continue its battle for freedom and independence but continues to advocate for a just and lasting peace. SPS
