No Moroccan sign to put end to occupation of Western Sahara

The Sahrawi people have not yet seen any sign from the Moroccan side to put an end to its occupation of the Western Sahara territory, the Frente POLISARIO delegate to the United Nations Ahmed Boukhari told British television, BBC.

“We have not yet seen, from Morocco, encouraging public declarations that could indicate Rabat’s willingness to put an end to the conflict in Western Sahara against POLISARIO,” said Boukhari.

Nevertheless, Morocco’s adherence to the African Union (AU) can be “an opportunity” to settle the conflict in Western Sahara provided that Rabat does not play an “unclear and doubtful” game.

Based on the occupier’s antecedents, Boukahri questions Morocco’s “honesty and frankness,” even broaching the “non-acknowledged intentions” of this country that recently adhered to the African Union.

He added that the Sahrawi people have never trusted the occupier, warning against any possible Moroccan strategy not compliant with the AU charter, particularly its article 4 directly regarding the Western Sahara people.

The article 4 of the AU charter considers that the borders of the member States are those acquired the day of the access to independence. Those of Morocco date back to 1956, which clearly excludes the Western Sahara territories from its authority.

“We will closely follow all Moroccan declarations as well as political and diplomatic action. If it turns out that it hides betrayal intentions, the member States of the AU will not accept it,” said the POLISARIO representative.

Boukhari also explained that Morocco’s accession was made on the basis of its approval of the AU charter that it signed and therefore, it must respect its commitment.
