US Congress demands implementation of UN Security Council resolution on Western Sahara

Washington, Oct 6, 2017 (SPS) - The US Congress, through the Committee on Appropriations, has called on the United States Permanent Mission to the United Nations to work hard to accelerate the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 2351 of 28 April 2017 on the issue of Western Sahara, according the Polisario Front representation in the US.

The source added that the US Congress, during its discussion of the Sahrawi issue, stressed that the support allocated under article 3 of this law, would be available to assist the people of Western Sahara after consultation and coordination among the Committees of Appropriations and representatives of the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO).

The US Congress’ handling of the Sahrawi issue would always be under an independent clause, meaning the total separation between Morocco and its internationally recognized national territory and the Western Sahara region under the responsibility of the United Nations. (SPS)
