The representative of the Polisario Front at the United Nations in charge of coordination with MINURSO, Sidi Mohamed Omar, sent Sunday a letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Antonio Guterres, in which he refuted the fallacies contained in the letter of the Moroccan representative to the United Nations to the Secretary-General in connection with the mock elections recently conducted by the Moroccan occupying state in the occupied Sahrawi territories.

In his letter, the representative of the Polisario Front at the United Nations stressed that the Moroccan presence in Western Sahara is an act of occupation, as confirmed by United Nations resolutions. As a result, all the actions of the Moroccan occupying state in the territory, including the mock elections to which the Moroccan representative referred in his letter, are essentially colonial practices imposed by force and therefore have no legitimacy and cannot have any impact on the legal status of Western Sahara as a non-decolonized territory.

The representative of the Polisario Front reiterated that the the Polisario Front, which remained committed to the peaceful resolution of the decolonization issue in Western Sahara, will never accept the fait accompli that the Moroccan occupying state seeks to impose by force in the occupied territories of Western Sahara and will continue to use all legitimate means to defend the sacred rights of the Sahrawi people and its national aspirations for freedom and independence.
