NAIROBI – Kenya has assured that its position on the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) is fully aligned with the Charter of the African Union (AU) and United Nations Security Council Resolution 690 which calls for the indisputable and inalienable right of the Saharawi people to self-determination through the organization of a free and fair referendum.

In a statement, the Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs affirmed that “Kenya’s position on the SADR is fully aligned with the decision of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) to admit the membership of the SADR on August 22, 1982, and the AU Charter which calls for the indisputable and inalienable right of the people to self-determination.

“In addition, the country aligns itself with the decisions of subsequent assemblies of heads of state and government at the AU on SADR,” the ministry added.

Therefore, the statement continued, “Kenya aligns itself with UN Security Council Resolution 690 (1991) which calls for the self-determination of Western Sahara through a free and fair referendum led by the UN and the AU. Kenya supports the full implementation of this UN Security Council resolution.

Highlighting Kenya’s excellent relationship with all AU and UN members, the ministry affirmed that it will always continue to strengthen these relations for mutual benefit.
