The Saharawi government and the Polisario Front call on the United Nations, the African Union and the European Union to intensify efforts in order to put an end to the Moroccan illegal occupation of parts of the territory of the SADR with a view to enable its people to fully exercise their national rights to freedom and sovereignty, and thus ending their suffering and enabling their state to occupy its right place among peoples and nations, said today, Friday, a communiqué of Sahrawi Foreign Affairs Ministry.
This is a full read of the communiqué:
“Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic
Foreign Affairs Ministry
Morocco’s fabrication of crises with several countries, international and regional organizations, is only due to the total and utter failure of its aggressive and expansionist adventure against the Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic.
This uncovering of defeat and isolation heavily felt in Rabat causes great dismay and deep bitterness.
The calculations of the Moroccan occupier, based on the belief by the Moroccan diplomacy, that Trump’s statement would generate a global dynamic that would seal the legitimization of the Moroccan illegal annexation and occupation of Western Sahara, have all resulted in a political fiasco.
Rabat’s aggressiveness agains Germany and Spain in particular, is the direct consequence of the global wave and the great momentum against Trump’s statement, but is also the result of the international community’s attachment to the legal nature of the Saharawi issue and its rejection of Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara.
The fabrication of false pretexts and the evocation of deceitful arguments cannot conceal the shock received by Morocco which relied, out of a political mistake, on certain member countries of the European Union to constitute the locomotor that will endorse Trump’s statement.
That statement, which did not last longer than the period Trump had left in the White House, could not hold water due to its inconsistency with international law and because it totally opposed the policy of the United States, its interests, its reputation, and the role entrusted to it in resolving conflicts and in establishing international peace and security.
The Saharawi government and the Polisario Front call on the United Nations, the African Union and the European Union to intensify efforts in order to put an end to the Moroccan illegal occupation of parts of the territory of the SADR with a view to enable its people to fully exercise their national rights to freedom and sovereignty, and thus ending their suffering and enabling their state to occupy its right place among peoples and nations.
It is time for the international community to assume its responsibilities arising from Moroccan denial of its obligations agreed upon in the 1991’s Settlement Plan and obstruction of United Nations and African Union’s efforts aimed at ending colonialism from Western Sahara and reaching peace between the two countries.
It has become necessary, and indeed urgent, to compel Morocco to respect recognized international borders and to turn the page on expansionism, aggression and blackmail.
It is no more acceptable to allow Morocco to continue its policies of annexation of neighbours’ territories, committing torture, oppression, war crimes and crimes against humanity against the Saharawi people all that while enjoying total impunity The Kingdom of Morocco must stop being a permanent source of destabilization and a vector of instability in the North West African region and in the Mediterranean.
We urgently call on the UN, AU and EU to compel Rabat to stop aggression, drug use, illegal immigration and give up the shameful use of terrorism and the complicity with its agents and networks as a state policy.
