Iceland calls on international community to take interest in Western Sahara’s issue

Submitted on

New York, 5 Sept 2015 (SPS)  - Foreign Affairs Minister of Iceland Gunnar Svensson Brasze called on the international community to take an interest in the issue of Western Sahara in order not to be forgotten.


“We must care not to forget the other conflicts that can erupt at any moment and here I cite the issue of Western Sahara,” said the Icelandic official following his speech before the 70th ordinary session of the United Nations General Assembly.



This position reflects the interest given by Iceland to the issue of Western Sahara since the adoption by the Icelandic Parliament in 2013 of a resolution calling to “work actively in the international forums for the self-determination in Western Sahara.” (SPS)
