Sahrawi Government denounces Morocco's continued intransigence towards conflict in Western Sahara

Shaheed El-Hafed, July 31, 2017 (SPS) - The Saharawi government denounced the contents of the speech of the King of Morocco on the occasion of the 18th anniversary of the so-called his “ascension of the throne”,  a speech, according to the Polisario Front, showed a total intransigence on the issue of Western Sahara.

"If the King of Morocco has tried to deny the accusation concerning the police nature of his regime in the Kingdom, it is certainly impossible to deny this fact towards the reality of the Moroccan occupation in Western Sahara since 31 October 1975," indicated Sunday a statement of the Ministry of Information.

The Government of the Sahrawi Republic and the Polisario Front reiterated their condemnation of this intransigent and dangerous attitude, which did not serve the Secretary-General's intention to create a new dynamic for the resolution of the conflict, calling on the United Nations to assume full responsibility and to resume its efforts to end the stalemate and the policy of obstruction of Morocco, release all Sahrawi political prisoners, stop the Moroccan looting of Sahrawi natural resources and end the militarization and siege and restrictions imposed by the Moroccan occupation on the occupied parts of Western Sahara.
