Polisario Front calls to speed up implementation of Security Council’s resolution 2440

Shaheed Alhafeed, December 10, 2018 (SPS) - The Polisario Front underlined, following its meeting with Morocco as part of the roundtable held in Geneva, the firm willingness and unwavering determination of the Sahrawi people in their fight for freedom and independence, while calling to speed up the implementation of the resolution 2440 of the Security Council to enable the Sahrawi people to exercise their right to self-determination.

In this regard, the Permanent Bureau of the Polisario Front’s National Secretariat held on Sunday a meeting chaired by Brahim Ghali, President of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), in which several points relating to the Sahrawi cause were examined, notably Geneva’s meeting initiated by UN Secretary General’s Personal Envoy Horst Kohler.

The Permanent Bureau kicked off its meeting with a tribute to the Sahrawi people’s children who are resisting peacefully in the occupied territories, south of Morocco and universities and those who took part in the demonstrations of 4 December in occupied al-Ayun, Smara and Boudjedour, defying the embargo imposed by the Moroccan occupier.

It condemned “the barbaric intervention of the Moroccan occupation forces which didn’t spare neither women, nor men and children,” calling on the United Nations to assume its responsibilities and to intervene urgently to put an end to the flagrant violations committed by Morocco against the Sahrawi civilians.

The Bureau also urged UN to work to “end the plundering the Sahrawi natural resources, reveal the fate of the missing people and to release the political prisoners in the Moroccan jails, like Gdeim Izik group.” (SPS)
