Polisario Front reiterates commitment to cooperate with Horst Koehler in his mission

New York, Oct 8, 2017 (SPS) - Representative of the Polisario Front to the United Nations, Mr. Boukhari Ahmed, has reaffirmed the firm commitment of the Polisario Front to cooperate with the Personal Envoy of the Secretary-General, Mr. Horst Koehler, in his mission.

Mr. Boukhari Ahmed stressed that the position of the Polisario Front on the issue of decolonization through the principle of self-determination remains a consistent, clear and transparent position, which is the same position adopted by the African Union and the United Nations.

He considered the prolongation of the Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara is primarily a blow to the credibility of the United Nations, as well as the protraction of the suffering of the Saharawi people who have lost thousands of martyrs on the battlefield and dozens of political prisoners are now imprisoned in Moroccan jails, such as the heroes of the Gdeim Izik group.
