The Algerian Army Chief of Staff, Lieutenant-General Saaed Shangriha, stressed that the impasse in the settlement of the conflict in Western Sahara, based on the United Nations resolutions, and the delay of some members of the UN Security Council in appointing a special representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations, contributed to the resumption of fighting between the Sahrawi Republic and Morocco.

In his speech before the 9th Congress on International Security, organized by the Russian Federation in Moscow on June 23-24, the Chief of Staff of the Algerian Army called on the United Nations to assume its responsibility in resolving the long-standing conflict in Western Sahara.

The Chief of Staff of the Algerian Army highlighted that the security context, which characterizes the Maghreb and Sahel region, the emergence of the armed conflict in Western Sahara, following the breach of the ceasefire agreement in 13 November 2020 by Morocco.

Lieutenant-General Saaed Shangriha pointed out that Western Sahara was the last colony in Africa, whose people aspired to freely determine their own destiny, which proved many times that the actions of the occupier aimed at annexing the Sahrawi territories by force, while obliterating the concept of respect for human rights in the occupied territories, are inconsistent with the Charter of the United Nations and the Constitutive Act of the African Union, of which the Sahrawi Republic is a founding member.
