UNGA stresses its responsibilities towards Sahrawi people, solution must be based on exercise of self-determination
New York, 14 December 2019 (SPS) – The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on approved a new resolution affirming its responsibilities towards the Sahrawi people and its inalienable right to self-determination.
The United Nations General Assembly, as responsible for decolonization issues, renews the position of the international community that does not recognize Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara at a time when France is trying from within the Security Council to change the legal nature of the Sahrawi issue to prevent the Sahrawi people from their independence and sovereignty over their ancestral lands in clear conspiracy with the Moroccan occupier.
The unanimous vote by the UN General Assembly, which includes 193 countries, reflects the international community’s adherence to legitimacy in the issue of Western Sahara, on which this resolution was adopted today as an issue of decolonization.
It should be noted that the Fourth Committee approved this resolution in October, under the theme “Implementation of the Declaration on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples.”
