Council of Ministers condemns maneuvers to circumvent CJEU decisions

Shaheed Alhafed, November 26, 2018 (SPS) - The Council of Ministers has condemned the maneuvers carried out by European bodies aimed at  circumvention the ruling of The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), which nullify any agreement with the Moroccan occupation state that includes the natural resources of Western Sahara.

In its meeting today, Monday, chaired by President of the Republic, Secretary General of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali, the Council stressed that these maneuvers are clear complicity with the Moroccan occupation and a real obstruction of the efforts of the international community aimed at decolonization of the last colony in the African continent.

The Council commended the African Union's adherence to its founding charter based on respect for the right of peoples to self-determination and independence, and the sanctity of the borders inherited from independence, valuing the unity of its members in the face of maneuvers aimed at dispersing the African continent and weakening its position.

It reiterated the willingness of the Sahrawi party to enter into the round of negotiations to be held in Geneva, on the basis of United Nations resolutions affirming the right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination and independence. (SPS)
