US Senator from the Republican Party, James Inhofe, raised the Sahrawi issue during a session of the US Senate on Monday, highlighting that the Sahrawi people are determined to continue the struggle for their legitimate rights to freedom and self-determination.
The American Senator reviewed before the members of the Senate the prominent stations of the struggle of the Sahrawi people since 1966, the date of the inclusion of the Sahrawi issue on the agenda of decolonization.
The United States Senator pointed out that the efforts of the international community to organize the referendum and resolve the question of Western Sahara had been thwarted by the Moroccan obstacles.
The US Senator described former US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Morocco’s alleged sovereignty over Western Sahara as a fatal mistake, stressing that it was a shocking and disturbing announcement for all those who valued the right to self-determination.
Senator James Inhofe stressed that the United States was required to fulfill its obligations towards the Sahrawi people, to help ensure that the Moroccan regime adheres to its commitments, and complete the procedures related to organizing the referendum.
The United States Senator invited United States President Joe Biden to participate in this effort to enable the Sahrawi people to exercise their legitimate rights to self-determination through referendum.
