Sahrawi State “irrevocable national, regional an international reality”

Smara (refugee camps), Feb 27, 2017 (SPS) - Sahrawi President and Secretary General of the Polisario Front Brahim Ghali affirmed Monday that the Sahrawi State is now “an irrevocable national, regional and international reality,” adding that the Sahrawi people are more committed to freedom and sovereignty of their State on its territories.

In his speech at the opening of the festivities commemorating the 41st anniversary of the proclamation of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), Ghali affirmed that “the Sahrawi people can be proud of their State which managed to pave the way among peoples and nations, as a founding member of the African Union (AU),  enjoying respect and recognition and brandishing its flag high around the world,” underlining that the Sahrawi State is now an “irrevocable national, regional and international reality.”

The Sahrawi people “are increasingly committed to their freedom and to their State’s sovereignty on its territories,” said the Sahrawi President, adding that “the axes of resistance and struggle are being strengthened and diversified, as a legitimate right recognized by the international charters.”

Despite the difficult circumstances, the Sahrawi State has today modern institutions where the executive, legislative and legal powers complement each others, in addition to a pioneering experience in training, health and management.

The Sahrawi State adopts political and socio-economic options “to the strategy and current guidelines, notably in terms of democracy, freedom, equality, respect of human rights and co-existence between cultures and religions.”

The priority is given to the investment in the human element as the backbone of an overall project where the Sahrawi women hold privileged positions and assume their responsibilities in the different missions assigned to them. (SPS)
