Permanent Office of National Secretariat praises EU position on Western Sahara

Shaheed Al-Hafed, 06 July 2020 (SPS) - The Permanent Office of the National Secretariat of the Polisario Front has praised the position expressed by the European Union on Western Sahara.

At its meeting today, Monday, chaired by President of the Republic, Secretary-General of the Polisario Front, Mr. Brahim Ghali, the Permanent Office noted the position expressed by the European Union, which asserts that the Kingdom of Morocco has no sovereignty over Western Sahara. 

The Permanent Office stressed the need for the EU's practices to be consistent with this position, in conformity with the charter and resolutions of the United Nations, considering Western Sahara and the Kingdom of Morocco as separate and distinct countries, and consequently the EU refrains from signing any agreement with the Moroccan occupation state that includes these parts, as this is a flagrant violation of international law, through blunt and shameful participation in the illegal plundering and exploitation of the natural wealth of the Sahrawi people.
