Chahid El Hafed,  Sept 26, 2018 (SPS) - The Sahrawi Republic  has Wednesday slammed the Moroccan intransigence policy to hinder on the international peace efforts in Western Sahara, calling on the UN Security Council to shoulder its full responsibility in responding to this situation and its dangerous  consequences that would entail  the international peace process and regional peace and security.
The address of the Moroccan Prime Minister before UNGA 73th reflects clearly the Moroccan occupation state is still insisting on the policy of intransigence and flight forward, at time when the SG prepares to submit his report to the UNSC on Western Sahara on the Horizon of the invitation to be sent by the Personal Envoy for Western Sahara, Mr. Horst Köhler, to enter into a new round of direct negotiations between the parties to the conflict, the Frente POLISARIO and the Kingdom of Morocco, the statements says
It has also underlined that the insistence of the occupying state to adhere to its intransigent stance at this particular time is an attempt to dismiss its defeats at the level of the African Union, expressed on its unshakable position by establishing a special mechanism at the highest level to contribute to the search for a solution to the conflict between the Sahrawi Republic and the Kingdom of Morocco in accordance with the decisions of the African Union and the United Nations.
Morocco has received repeated setbacks at the level of the European Union, where the European Court of Justice issued judicial rulings reaffirming the advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice in 1975 and clearly stipulated that Morocco has no sovereignty or administrative mandate over Western Sahara, emphasizing the fact that Morocco is an occupying Power in the territory as provided for in General Assembly resolutions 34/37 of 1979 and 35/19 of 1980 and other relevant resolutions, the said communiqué stresses
despite the Moroccan naked attempt to falsify the facts, the international community position would remain steadfast on the Saharawi issue as a decolonization issue, as recently confirmed by the Special Committee on the Situation with regard to the Implementation of the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples In its annual report to the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, Sahrawi Information Ministry communiqué adds SPS
