Boujdour — The Prime Minister Mr. Abdelkader Taleb Omar has called today, Thursday, on France to "positively" contribute in facilitating the decolonization of Western Sahara, urging, on other hand, Spain to assume its historic, legal and moral responsibilities vis-à-vis the right of Saharawi people to self-determination and independence.
In a speech delivered during the celebrations marking the 38th anniversary of the proclamation of Saharawi Republic (SADR), held today morning in the Wilaya of Boujdour, the Saharawi Prime Minister renewed Polisario Front's gratitude for the position expressed by the United States last year, which provides for the extension of MINURSO, UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara, to include human rights monitoring.
He, in the same regard, asked to put into action this resolution, during the UN Security Council session next April devoted to examine the situation in Western Sahara in the light of the annual report of the UN Secretary-General.
In a ceremony attended by a significant number of foreign participants, including those who took part at the 14 edition of Sahara Marathon, Mr. Abdelkader Taleb Omar stated that such position (U.S. position) would help the UN special envoy to carry out his duties in the region.
He also warned that the Saharawi people, led by the Polisario Front, can no longer remain "idly by", but they will continue to escalate the resistance and peaceful action, especially in the occupied territories and southern Morocco.
Saharawi PM reiterated his call on the UN Security Council to intervene to lift the siege imposed over the occupied Saharawi territories, as to speed up the conduct of Saharawi people's self-determination.
He, therefore, hailed Algeria's position towards the Saharawi cause, which has been stressed by President Bouteflika in his letter to the Saharawi President Mr. Mohamed Abdelaziz on the occasion of the 38th anniversary of SADR declaration.
