The theme of strengthening friendship and cooperation between Algeria and Namibia in the field of human rights was the focus of the meeting, which brought together on Monday the President of the National Council for Human Rights, Bouzid Lazhari, with the Ambassador of the Republic of Namibia in Algeria, Panduleni-Kaino Shingenge, according to a statement of the Council.

The meeting also discussed – the statement added – the issue of Western Sahara, as the last African colony, and the inalienable right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination, and how to accompany this just cause and defend it in international and regional networks concerned with human rights.

The two parties agreed on organizing a meeting on the occasion of the 61st anniversary of the UN General Assembly Resolution 1514 of December 14, 1960, which includes the Declaration on Granting Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples, in order to deepen thinking about the possibilities of implementing the right of self-determination for the Sahrawi people in cooperation with the Sahrawi Commission for Human Rights.
