Siege of occupied territories delegation unveils lies of Moroccan state (Minister of Occupied Territories)

Shaheed Alhafed, January 20, 2019 (SPS) – Member of National Secretariat of the Polisario Front, Minister of the Occupied Territories and Communities Abroad, Bashir Mustafa Sayed, has underlined that the presence of all formations of the Moroccan forces to besiege the delegation of the occupied territories returning from the Sahrawi refugee camps has unmasked lies of the Moroccan occupation state in guaranteeing freedom of movement and fundamental freedoms of persons.

Commenting on the Moroccan occupation authorities preventing the delegation of human rights activists from moving to the other occupied cities and southern Morocco, the minister highlighted that the ban came a few days after Morocco obtained an illegal authorization by the European Union to loot the Sahrawi natural resources in contravention of international law, the principles of the European Union and the world order, and against the will of the Security Council, the efforts of the Secretary-General's Personal Envoy, and the Saharawi people's right, which is a conspiracy against the international community towards the just Sahrawi  cause.

Mr. Bashir emphasized that the momentousness of the delegation and Sahrawis’ confidence in it have increased, and showed a determination that the enemy found nothing but repression to confront it, calling on the world to support peace and prevent siege on the occupied Sahrawi territories.

The Minister of the Occupied Territories and Communities Abroad deplored the decision of the European Union and its Commission regarding its approval of the Agreement on Agricultural and Fishing Products with Morocco, which covers the occupied parts of Western Sahara. (SPS)
