A draft resolution put forward by members of the Swedish parliament on Monday called on the government to exert all possible pressure to end Morocco’s occupation of Western Sahara.
The draft resolution, which is expected to be debated by the Swedish parliament in the coming weeks, urged the strengthening of the role of Swedish diplomacy to defend the Western Sahara issue in international forums.
The draft resolution highlighted that the basic rights of the Sahrawi people have been violated for more than four decades. Therefore, it requires a strong commitment from Sweden to promote and protect the rights of the Sahrawi people.
The draft resolution called on the Swedish government to submit proposals to the European Union on concluding agreements with the legitimate representative of the Sahrawi people, the Polisario Front, on the exploitation of the natural resources of Western Sahara. (Sumoud)
