British Labour Party MP Kim Johnson questioned the government of Boris Johnson on the diplomatic actions it should take to facilitate a self-determination referendum in occupied Western Sahara.

The Labour MP asked in an oral question to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dominic Raab, to comment on “the steps he is taking to facilitate an arrangement for a referendum on self-determination” in the non-self-governing territory.

Ms. Kim Johnson also invited the Minister to inform Parliament “of the recent discussions held by British diplomacy with representatives of certain countries at the UN on issues related to the referendum on self-determination, in accordance with the provisions of the UN Charter.

The British foreign minister is expected to answer Tuesday the MP’s questions.

The Sahrawi issue returns to the British Parliament, on the eve of the UN Security Council meeting, scheduled for Wednesday in New York to discuss the latest developments in Western Sahara and the UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO).
