 "Pan-African Parliament and Algeria share the same position regarding Western Sahara issue. We want that the international law be applied, to allow Western Sahara people to exert their right of self-determination," Dang told reporters following his meeting with the speaker of People's National Assembly (lower house of Parliament ), Mohamed-Larbi Ould Khelifa.
