New Sahrawi Ambassador to Timor-Leste presents copy of credential letters

Dili (Timor-Leste), 9 June 2021 (SPS) - The New Saharawi (S.A.D.R.) Ambassador designate to the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, Mr. Abba Malainin, has presented Wednesday a copy of his credentials letter to Mr. Jose Antonio Amorim Dias, Director- General of the Protocol in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Timor-Leste, whom he welcomed the new Saharawi ambassador and wished him all the success in his duties.

Both officials reviewed the excellent historical bilateral relations and advocated its further development.

The talks also tackled the recent developments in Western Sahara especially after Morocco’ last November military violation of the cease-fire agreement between POLISARIO and Morocco and the new wave of human rights violations in occupied parts of Western Sahara.

It is worth mentioning that upon the restoration of Timor-Leste’s independence in 2002 diplomatic relations were immediately established between the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste and the Saharawi Republic (S.A.D.R.). (SPS)
