Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Arancha González Laya, confirmed that the decision to determine the future of Western Sahara cannot be determined by any country, whatever its size , in response to the outgoing US president’s announcement of recognition of the alleged Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara.

In press statements, the Spanish head of diplomacy stressed the pivotal role of the United Nations in resolving the Western Sahara issue.

The Spanish official expected that the administration of US President-elect Joe Biden would correct the position.

The Spanish Foreign Minister underlined that resolving the conflict and the status of the Western Sahara require international consensus, calling in the same context the UN Secretary General to push forward the appointment of a new envoy for Western Sahara.
