Participants in 9th Congress of Youth Union call for speedy solution to Sahrawi issue

Auserd (Refugee Camps), December 10, 2017 (SPS) - Participants in the 9th Congress of the Youth Union (UJSARIO) called for a speedy resolution of the decades-old Sahrawi issue and to put an end to the suffering of the Sahrawi people.

The participants called on Morocco to respect the founding declaration of the African Union, stressing that SADR is one of the founding members of the Union.

The participants condemned Morocco's failure to comply with international legitimacy, which recognizes the Sahrawi people’s right to exercise their right to self-determination and independence, while reaffirming their absolute and principled solidarity with their struggle and spreading the word about their just cause.

They also condemned the Moroccan regime's disregard for the human rights in occupied Western Sahara and the illegal exploitation of the territory’s natural resources.

The works of the Congress continues for the third day and the electoral process is launched this evening for applications for the posts of Secretary-General and Executive Office of the Organization. (SPS)
