The Polisario rejects the speech of the King of Morocco and announces that it resumes the fight




The Polisario Front reproached this Sunday Moroccan King, Mohamed VI, to “deny reality” in reference to the speech delivered on Saturday night, in which the Alawite monarch highlighted the international recognition of Moroccan sovereignty over the former Spanish colony of the Sahara.

“The King of the occupying country has repeated in his new speech last night on the anniversary of the military invasion against the Saharawi people the usual string of fallacies, hoaxes and illusions to justify the intransigence and folly,” said the Government of the self-proclaimed Arab Republic Sahrawi Democratic Party (SADR) that dominates the Polisario Front in a statement published this Sunday and collected by the Sahrawi news agency SPS.

The Moroccan King stressed in his speech on Saturday that the new American president, Joe Biden, has maintained the recognition of Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara decided by its predecessor, Donald Trump. “The legitimacy of our cause is validated by the annals of history, because such is the deep and ardent desire of the Saharawi population and finally because international recognition confirms it,” said Mohamed VI.

“In fact, the international community does not recognize Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara and its intransigence to continue with the aggression will only bring the Moroccan people more poverty, deprivation, dependence and loss of dignity and sovereignty,” stressed the self-proclaimed Saharawi Government. as reported by Europa Press.

For the Polisario “this denial of reality is the reason for the return to war, the consequences of which weigh only on the Moroccan Alawite regime.” The ceasefire signed between the parties in 1991 to facilitate the holding of an independence referendum in Western Sahara broke in November 2020 after the Polisario denounced a Moroccan military action against Sahrawi activists in the demilitarized zone. However, Rabat considers that the ceasefire is still in force.

“The Sahrawi people (…) will not cease their struggle until Morocco puts an end to its aggression and occupation,” the Saharawi government stressed in its statement.

Along the same lines, the president of the SADR and leader of the Polisario Front, Brahim Gali, He promised this Saturday to inflict “bitter defeats” on the Moroccan Army and condemned the attack attributed to Morocco in which three Algerian truck drivers died last week on the highway between Nouakchott and Ouargla, in the part of Western Sahara under control of the polisarian militias.

These deaths “prove the malice of the Moroccan regime and the extent of its hostility not only towards the Sahrawi people but also against the peoples of the region.”

Algeria, an ally of the Polisario Front, has denounced the “extreme gravity” of this attack, an “act of State terrorism” using “sophisticated weapons”, according to statements last Saturday by the Algerian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ramtane Lamamra, collected by the Algerian news agency, APS.

Rabat threat

Mohamed VI warned in his speech on Saturday night that his country will not maintain commercial relations with countries that have “vague or ambivalent positions” on the Moroccan character of Western Sahara. “To those who hold vague or ambivalent positions, we declare that Morocco will not engage with them in any economic or commercial approach that excludes the Moroccan Sahara,” said the Alawite monarch in an official speech delivered on the occasion of the 46th anniversary of the Green March.

The Moroccan king thus referred to the September rulings of the General Court of the EU (TEU,) which annulled the fisheries agreement between the EU and Morocco for including Western Sahara and the tariff advantages that the bloc grants to the importation of fish. agricultural and fishing products of the former Spanish colony. EU governments have until December 16 to appeal the sentences.
