Colombian Congress Vice-President : UN "must assume its responsibilities in Western Sahara"

ALGIERS - Colombian Congress Vice President Carlos German Navas Talero said on Thursday that "the UN must take responsibility for its responsibilities in Western Sahara" and called for "rapid" resumption of the political negotiations between the parties to the conflict, namely the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) and Morocco.

Speaking to the Algerian Radio, Carlos Navas supported the Sahrawi cause and the resolutions adopted by the UN, relating to this issue.

"The UN must assume its responsibilities in Western Sahara", occupied by Morocco since 1975, he added. However, the vice-president of the Colombian congress deplored the absence of a new UN envoy since May 2019 and reaffirmed that "the Security Council and the international community should consider all alternative and peaceful methods to advance the political path."

"We look forward to the appointment of a UN new personal envoy" for Western Sahara, "to support the negotiations of the parties and relaunch the political process," said the former Colombian Minister of Justice.

In addition, he called for "rapid" resumption of the political negotiations between the parties to the conflict in Western Sahara and the need to "prepare the conditions for a new cease-fire," after the violation by Morocco of that of 1991, following the aggression launched on  November 13th against peaceful Sahrawi demonstrators in El-Guerguerat, in the south-west of Western Sahara.
