Berlin, 3 December 2022 (SPS) - Member of the National Secretariat of the Polisario Front, Prime Minister, Mr. Bushraya Hamoudi Beyoun, has reiterated in Berlin the right of the Sahrawi people to continue the armed struggle, the only way to end the Moroccan occupation.

Speaking at the opening of the 46th Conference of the European Coordination for Support and Solidarity with the Sahrawi People (EUCOCO), the Prime Minister stressed that "the current situation in Western Sahara and the position of some influential countries will only lead to more tensions in the region," denouncing "the repeated maneuvers of Morocco and its allies in order to thwart any solution that would lead to the implementation of international legality.

"All efforts of the international community to find a peaceful and just solution have been ignored," he said, noting that the attitude of some countries "was the cause of non-compliance with international law.

With regard to the role of Spain, the administering power of the Territory from the legal point of view, Mr. Bushraya Hamoudi Beyoun indicated that this country "has spared no effort to support the illegal Moroccan occupation of Western Sahara, ignoring the declarations of the members of the Spanish Parliament and the vast campaigns of solidarity with the Saharawi people, and ignoring international law".

"The attachment of the Sahrawi people to peace will not prevent it from using all legal means to recover its national sovereignty," said the Prime Minister.

The work of the 46th Conference of the European Coordination for Support and Solidarity with the Sahrawi People (EUCOCO), opened Friday in Berlin, under the slogan: "Self-determination for the independence of Western Sahara".
