About 380 Members of the European Parliament have sent a letter to the new U.S. president, Joe Biden, in which they call for the reversal of his predecessor’s decision regarding recognition of Morocco’s alleged sovereignty over Western Sahara.
The parliamentarians urged the new White House tenant to respect International Law and the United Nations Charter, which President Donald Trump “violated” by making his proclamation through a tweet.
The former US president made public his position on Western Sahara on 10 December, while announcing the willingness of Morocco and the Zionist entity to normalize their relations.
The Swiss parliamentary group that coordinated the action of MEPs said in a press release that nearly 380 signatories of the letter to Biden expressed their “dissatisfaction” with Donald Trump’s decision and the fact that it was made in exchange for the normalization of relations between Morocco and the Zionist entity.
On the other hand, MEPs emphasize the need to find a solution to the conflict “by guaranteeing the Sahrawi people the right to self-determination under United Nations resolutions”.
The signatories of the letter also draw the attention of the U.S. president to the “tragedy that could be generated by the prolongation of the conflict because of the deprivation of the Saharawi people of its fundamental rights for 45 years”.
Trump’s proclamation about Western Sahara has provoked negative reactions both abroad and in the United States, including the Republican Party to which the 45th president belongs.
Several personalities have pointed out the illegal nature of this proclamation, which goes against United Nations resolutions and the official position of the United States, for three decades, on the Sahrawi issue.
