Shaheed El-Hafed (refugee camps), Oct 21, 2017 (SPS) -President of Republic, Secretary General of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali, said Thursday that the Polisario Front will spare no effort to make successful the mission of the Personal Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations for Western Sahara Horst Kohler provided that Morocco shows political willingness.

In a statement to the press after meeting Kohler, the Sahrawi president said that the meeting was “direct, positive and important.” He emphasized the role the UN should play to complete the decolonization process in Western Sahara, the last colony in Africa

Ghali also expressed the Polisario Front’s willingness to cooperate with Kohler, and stressed that “the Sahrawi party will spare no effort to make his mission successful provided that Morocco, which has been undermining UN’s efforts since 1991 to date, shows political willingness.”

Sahrawi president also hoped that “Kohler will be backed by the UN Secretary General and Security Council members, notably its five permanent members.”

In this regard, he called on the UN “to take into consideration the African Union’s role as a key stakeholder in the mission of decolonization in Western Sahara." (SPS)
