Polisario Front slams UN silence, reiterates rejection of any approach that deviates from UN-AU settlement plan


Birlahlou (SPS) – Saharawi President of the Republic, Secretary-General of the Polisario Front, Mr. Brahim Ghali, expressed the Sahrawi authorities’ deep condemnation of the “complicit and unjustified silence” of the United Nations Secretariat, its reluctance to call things by their true names and to hold the Moroccan occupying state accountable for the consequences of its documented violation of the ceasefire, reiterating the Polisario Front’s rejection of any approach that deviates from the United Nations-African Union settlement plan.

In a letter addressed by President Ghali to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, Mr. Ghali outlined the position of the Sahrawi party on several elements contained in Guterres’ recent report on the situation in Western Sahara.

In this vein, President Ghali made several observations and recommendations, including the resumption of war between the Polisario Front and Morocco following the Moroccan army’s violation of the ceasefire agreement, reminding the Organization of “the undeniable truth attested to by the rapid development of events on the ground and their concrete consequences, stressing that “this is the plain truth.

Mr. Ghali considered what he dubbed as “quiet diplomacy and destructive ambiguity” as “dangerous tools, especially when inaction and indecisiveness in this case only encourage the aggressor to continue its aggression and defiance”.

However, President Ghali added, the Secretary-General and the UN Secretariat have once again chosen to remain silent on this fact, even when the report once again acknowledges the “resumption of hostilities” and stresses that “the continued lack of an effective ceasefire threatens the stability of the region with the risk of escalation as hostilities continue”.
