Report of the SG to the Security Council on Western Sahara raises questions

PUSL.- The Polisario Front sent a letter to the President of the United Nations Security Council (CS) with his comments on the report of António Guterres, UN Secretary-General (see here) presented to CS members on 3 October.

The report sent to the SC by the Secretary-General (SG) is intended for discussion prior to the meeting at the end of the month in which the extension of the mandate of MINURSO (United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara) will be decided. In the letter, the Polisario Front reaffirms its readiness to resume negotiations in accordance with United Nations resolutions but points out some concerns regarding the points of the Secretary-General’s report regarding the credibility of impartiality and independence of MINURSO and of the UN itself.

The Polisario Front explains in the letter that it is necessary to analyze the underlying causes of the Guergarat crisis  that have implications for the existing military agreements and the political process.

They also highlight the concern about illegal attempts to “normalize the situation” of the Moroccan military occupation of the occupied territories of Western Sahara. They also address the issue of meetings with the MINURSO Head in any place within the Mission’s defined area of ​​action.

As PUSL has published, there is a concern on the part of Horst Koehler, SG Personal Envoy for Western Sahara, with the “development” and “investments” of the Occupied Territories which is disconcerting in the face of the real situation in this non-autonomous territory and the serious violations of human rights.

Mohamed Khadad, head of the Polisario Front’s external relations with MINURSO, warned today that if the decision of the European Court of Justice is not respected and a final agreement is reached, fishing vessels in the Canaries will be prohibited from exploiting fishing resources in the waters of Western Sahara.

“Fishing in the waters of Western Sahara is a tradition of the Canaries, we respect and want them to continue, but we can not accept that Morocco is negotiating and benefiting from the exploitation of resources,” Mohamed Khadad said in a press conference today.

Khadad also recalled that the Polisario Front will be open from today on to open negotiations and agreements within the legal framework defined by the Court of Justice of the European Union for the continuation of fishing in Saharawi waters.

For his part, Polisario Front lawyer Gilles Devers recalled that the aim of the movement is the liberation of the Saharawi territory, and stressed the need for governments not to turn this case into an economic issue of “simple” fishing rights.
