In a letter addressed on Wednesday to Malawian President, Lazarus Chakwera, the Sahrawi president pointed out that the opening of a Malawi consulate in occupied El-Aaiun would constitute a flagrant violation of international law and an act of aggression against the Sahrawi Republic, a founding member of the African Union.
The Sahrawi president urged his Malawian counterpart to refrain from carrying out any illegal action in the occupied Sahrawi territories that would constitute aggression against the Sahrawi Republic.
