2 weeks ago at 18/Feb/2021 42

Twenty-seven (27) members of the U.S. Congress addressed a letter to U.S. President Joe Biden asking him to “reverse” the decision of his predecessor, Donald Trump on the recognition of Morocco’s alleged sovereignty over Western Sahara and to re-engage the United States in supporting the holding of a referendum on self-determination in Western Sahara.

“The abrupt decision of the previous government, on December 11, 2020, to formally recognize the illegitimate sovereignty claims of the Kingdom of Morocco over Western Sahara lacks visibility, undermining decades of coherent US policy (…)”, said US Senators in their letter sent to the new tenant of the White House.

“We respectfully ask you to reverse this misguided decision and re-engage the United States in the pursuit of a referendum on self-determination for the Sahrawi people,” the 27 U.S. Senators added.
