PSOE states in its election program that it will support negotiations on Western Sahara at the UN and other institutions and that MINURSO monitors human rights

PUSL.- As published today in the Spanish press the PSOE (Partido Socialista Obrero Español) will support negotiations on Western Sahara at the UN and other international institutions and that MINURSO monitors human rights. MINURSO (United Nations Mission for a Referendum in Western Sahara) was established in 1991 after the ceasefire agreed between Morocco and the Polisario Front when Morocco was losing the war. To date, Morocco has not fulfilled its promise and has been postponing consecutively the referendum with the support of France and Spain.

The proposal for a “Progressive Joint Program” tabled on Tuesday by the PSOE includes among its commitments “to promote recognition of the Palestinian State by EU Member States” and to support negotiating processes to find a solution for Western Sahara.
