Oslo, May 27,2016 (SPS) -The Sahrawi issue must be among the priorities of the United Nations, Angolan Minister of Foreign Affairs Georges Chikoti, calling for the completion of the decolonization process in Africa.

"The Sahrawi issue is a key issue for the African continent," the Angolan diplomat stated, stressing that "the only solution lies in the implementation the UN's relevant resolutions, enabling the Sahrawi people exercise its inalienable right to self-determination to restore its independence."
