European Aviation Agreement: Frente POLISARIO determined to defend Sahrawi people's rights

Bir Lahlou (liberated territories), Oct 27, 2017 (SPS) -  The representative of the people of Western Sahara, Frente POLISARIO said to be "determined" to defend the sovereign rights of Sahrawi people, following the adoption by the European Parliament of an Agreement on Civil Aviation, under negotiation between the European Union (EU) and Morocco covering the territory of Western Sahara.

"Although the EU Court of Justice clearly ruled, in December 2016, that the Kingdom of Morocco and Western Sahara are two distinct and separate territories, and that therefore, no trade deal can be concluded on this territory without the consent of the people of Western Sahara, the European political leaders obstinately seek not to apply the ruling," said the Frente POLISARIO on Thursday.

The European Parliament adopted Tuesday the Euro-Mediterranean Aviation Agreement between the European Community and its member states, on the one hand, and the Kingdom of Morocco, on the other hand.SPS
