Polisario front calls for immediate halt of Moroccan actions in buffer zone of Elgargarat

Shaheed El Hafed, August 27, 2016 (SPS) The National Secretariat of the Polisario Front called on the United Nations to take the necessary measures for the immediate cessation of the work carried out by the Moroccan occupying state in the buffer zone of Elgagarat in Western Sahara and the withdrawal without delay of civil and military elements on site.

Meeting Saturday in an extraordinary session chaired by President of the Republic, Secretary General of the Polisario Front, dedicated to the study of the serious situation caused by the Moroccan violation of the agreement of cease-fire in the buffer zone of Elgargarat, south of the Saharawi Republic, the National Secretariat of the Polisario Front warned of the repercussions of this aggressive approach of the Moroccan State and its devastating consequences for peace, security and stability in the region.

The National Secretariat exhorted the UN Security Council to "urgently intervene" to put an end to this situation and assume its responsibilities in the face of Moroccan violations of the ceasefire in force since 1991, signed by both parties to the conflict, the Polisario Front and Morocco under the auspices of the United Nations, pending the completion of the decolonization process in Western Sahara through a referendum on self-determination for the Sahrawi people.

"The actions taken by the Moroccan State reflect deliberate and dangerous intention to impose colonial fait accompli, the expansion of the occupation, the provocation of the region and creation of more tension, which is part of the Rabat rebellion against international legitimacy, the United Nations, its Secretary-General, his Personal Envoy and special representative and MINURSO ", until the competence of the Security Council", estimated the National Secretariat.

Moreover, the National Secretariat reaffirmed that the Saharawi people and its sole legitimate representative, Frente Polisario, cannot "what so ever " accept "such aggressive practices", calling the Saharawi people to be more vigilant to thwart the plots of the Moroccan enemy. (SPS)
