Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune reaffirmed on Monday that Algeria’s position on the western Sahara issue is firm, unchanged and will not accept the fait accompli that the Moroccan occupier is trying to impose in the last African colony.
President Abdelmadjid Tebboune made it clear, according to excerpts from an interview with Al-Jazeera, broadcast Tuesday evening that Algeria will not accept the fait accompli in Western Sahara, whatever the circumstances.
President Tebboune recalled, “The issue of Western Sahara has been, for four decades, in the hands of the UN Special Committee on decolonization. The United Nations consider the Western Sahara as a colony”.
On relations with neighboring Morocco, President Tebboune said: “we have no problem with Morocco. Morocco has a problem with us.”
“We had in the past good relations with Morocco and the borders were open despite the issue of Western Sahara,” he said, reaffirming Algeria’s consistent position vis-à-vis Western Sahara. “We do not accept the fait accompli, whatever the circumstances are,” he stressed.
