Koehler’s Press Release

Horst KöhlerPUSL.- After the visit to Western Sahara, the UN Secretary-General’s personal envoy to this territory issued a statement that falls far short of what was expected. Koehler does not seem to want to “annoy” the Moroccan occupant and does not mention that the Saharawi population has gone in mass , demonstrating in the streets making it clear that there is no other solution other than self-determination.

The former president of Germany, former Maastricht treaty negotiator, former trilateral commission member with ties to the Bilderberg group, former IMF chairman, former chairman of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, co-chair of the African Bank for Development and author of the Marshall Plan for Africa, decided in his statement to emphasize the need for a “realistic and compromise” solution that opens the door to foreign investment and job creation in the region. He seemed more concerned with the economy and foreign investment than with the occupation and the machine of repression of the occupier. arbitrary detention, enforced disappearances, appropriation of culture, imposition of Moroccan nationality on Saharawis, alteration of Sahrawi names so that they become “Moroccan”, torture, etc., etc.

July 1, 2018

The UN personal envoy arrived in El Aaiun (capital of Western Sahara) on Thursday 28 June 2018 to begin his first visit to the occupied territories in order to gain a better understanding of the real situation on the ground.

This visit is in line with what was established in the last UN Security Council resolution on Western Sahara on 27 April, which invites both parties, the Polisario Front and the Kingdom of Morocco, to enter into direct negotiations, without preconditions, to reach an agreement that provides the self-determination of the Saharawi people.

From the moment of the announcement of the visit, the Moroccan occupation authorities made every effort to avoid any sign of expression of the free will of the Saharawi people, drowning the city in a sea of ​​forces of all types and conditions of security, imposing a authentic curfew and martial law and establishing the hermetic closure of the territory to any international observer who wanted to enter. All this, with the aim of showing, before the UN envoy, the fallacy that the territory is a haven of peace and stability.

ecodiario.- The UN Security Council today renewed the mission of the organization in Western Sahara (Minurso) for six months and urged Morocco and the Polisario Front to resume negotiations to end the conflict.
