Polisario Front warns against threats to stability in region conducted by Morocco (Statement)

Bir-Lehlou (Liberated Territories), 27 September 2020 (SPS) - The Polisario Front and the SADR government have alerted the international community, the United Nations and its mission for the organization of the referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO), on the seriousness of the escalation led by the Moroccan occupation state, calling on the UN Security Council to take a clear and firm position in order to save international peace and security in the region.

The Minister of Information, the government's spokesperson, warned in a statement of the danger of Morocco's current extensive campaign to tarnish the reputation of the Polisario Front, on the eve of the Security Council's debates on the issue of Western Sahara and in light of the successive positions expressed before the 75th session of the UN General Assembly by states and governments supporting the right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination and independence.

"This frantic campaign demonstrates Morocco's aggressive intentions to drag the entire region into an escalation towards the unknown, due to the march of Sahrawi civilians in peaceful protest against the illegal passage of El Guergarat", he said, underlining that this breach constitutes a violation of the ceasefire, signed in 1991 between the two parties to the conflict (the Polisario Front and Morocco) under the auspices of the UN and the OAU, currently AU.

Morocco, through this campaign, is trying unambiguously to drag the whole region into an escalation towards the unknown, in order to maintain its illegal occupation of our homeland, plunder our wealth and prevent our people from exercising their inalienable right to self-determination and independence, the spokesman pointed out.

He also noted that Morocco is trying to divert public attention from the reality of Morocco's internal political, social and economic problems, "which will not escape its inevitable fate, namely the definitive withdrawal from our homeland"; concluded the statement of the government spokesperson.
