"Africa, which has defeated the European occupation by its political and armed struggle at times and has overcome Apartheid, must today end the last colony," he continued.

"The failure of the ceasefire following the violation of an agreement in force since 1991 and the dangerous escalation of the conflict in Western Sahara are the result of decades of policy of systematic blocking and slowing down of settlement plans, circumvention of the negotiation process and recurrent attempts to impose a fait accompli in the territory of a founding member state of the AU," affirmed President Tebboune.
