President of Republic affirms national cause has achieved successive victories (45th Anniversary)

Tifariti (Liberated Territories), May 21, 2018 (SPS) - On the occasion of the festivities marking the 45th Anniversary of the outbreak of the armed struggle, organised in the liberated town of Tifariti, the President of Republic, Secretary General of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali, affirmed in his speech that the national cause has achieved successive and important victories.

The President of Republic highlighted the achievements of the Sahrawi state at the level of the African Union, which was reflected in the strong message that the Euro-African Summit in Abidjan clearly addressed the attempts of the Moroccan occupier to ignore the charter of the African Union.

In this regard, he highlighted the recent ruling of the European Court of Justice, which confirmed that Western Sahara is not part of Morocco, and that the Moroccan presence, "is an illegal military occupation, with no right to exploit the soil or the waters of Western Sahara without the consent of the Saharawi people, expressed by its sole representative, the Polisario Front," said the President of the Republic, expressing "the will of the Polisario Front to open a serious and responsible dialogue with the European Commission , in accordance with international law, international humanitarian law and common law ".

President Ghali, on the other hand, asserted the Independence Intifada that was undertaken on May 21, 2005, "constitutes a qualitative leap in the resistance against the Moroccan occupier, by the methods and scope of their actions," he said, while citing "The epic of Gdeim Izik in 2010, and the demonstrations of May 4, 2013"

He took the opportunity to appeal to the international community to intensify efforts to free all Saharawi political prisoners in Moroccan prisons.

Finally, the President of the Republic demanded that Morocco "resort to reason, political will and respect of international legality to find a just and lasting peace in our region," he said, expressing the will of the Polisario Front to begin direct negotiations with the Kingdom of Morocco, with the aim of completing the process of decolonization of Western Sahara.
