The West must keep an eye on what is happening in Western Sahara

Algiers, Jan 14, 2022 (SPS) - Human rights activist Claude Mangin said the Western powers, France in particular, should "keep an eye on what is happening in Western Sahara", calling on the Security Council to "give more means "to the new UN envoy to relaunch the UN settlement plan.

"The Western powers must keep an eye on what is happening in Western Sahara, especially since Europe is not far from the Maghreb geographically, and no one has an interest in seeing things are getting worse in the region, "said Ms. Mangin Thursday evening in a statement to Radio Algeria International (RAI), saying that" the French government has every interest in pushing Morocco to resume dialogue.

For her, everyone is aware of the "dangerousness" of the situation which has prevailed in Western Sahara since the resumption of the armed struggle on November 13, 2020, and that "it cannot last very long".SPS
