President of the Republic, Secretary General of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali, said Sunday in the Sahrawi refugee camps in Dakhla, that the Moroccan occupier is the origin of the conflict in El Guerguerat given the assaults he committed against the Sahrawi people.
Speaking at the opening of the 9th Congress of the General Union of Sahrawi Workers (UGTSARIO), Ghali said that ”the Moroccan occupier is the origin of the armed struggle in the region, not only by its colonial practices aiming at legitimizing the armed occupation, but also through the violation of the ceasefire agreement with the Sahrawi side, by attacking defenseless Sahrawi civilians and occupying new Sahrawi territories in the area of El-Guerguerat on November 13, 2020′.’
According to the Sahrawi President, ”peace and stability are not possible in the region, without the implementation of international law, through the United Nations Charter and the AU Constitutive Act which allows the Sahrawi people to exercise their right to self-determination and independence’.’
The work of the 9th Congress of the General Union of Sahrawi Workers (UGTSARIO) began Sunday in the wilaya of Dakhla, Sahrawi refugee camps.
The Congress is held under the theme “Action, Sacrifice and Fidelity, for the Completion of Liberation and Edification”, in the presence of more than 400 delegates of Sahrawi workers and representatives of foreign trade unions in solidarity with the Saharawi cause, as well as parliamentarians and parties concerned with liberation issues.
