Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova affirmed that Moscow’s position on the Sahrawi cause “has not changed”, and that the final settlement of the conflict can only be achieved through the implementation of the relevant decisions of the UN General Assembly and Security Council within the framework of measures in line with the principles and objectives of the UN Charter.

“The decision of former US President Donald Trump to recognise the alleged Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara undermines the international legal framework for defining the final status of these territories through a referendum under the auspices of the UN,” the Russian diplomat declared at a press conference in Moscow.

She also indicated that the resumption of direct negotiations between Morocco and the Polisario Front under the aegis of the UN as well as the appointment of a special envoy should relaunch the peace process in Western Sahara.
