Statement of the Sahrawi Delegation after the Two Days-negotiations

STATEMENT OF PRESIDENT OF THE SAHARAWI PARLIAMENT, HEAD OF THE DELEGATION OF THE FRETNE POLISARIOAt the end of two days after the beginning of the process of direct negotiations between the Frente POLISARIO and the Kingdom of Morocco, I would like to express to the Secretary-General and his Personal Envoy the most sincere thanks of the Frente POLISARIO for their efforts that have allowed this event to take place.The Frente POLISARIO has participated with good faith and with a high sense of responsibility towards the Saharawi people and all peoples of the region with a view to contributing to the success of this first round.These two days have confirmed that to achieve “a mutually acceptable political solution that provides for the self-determination of the people of Western Sahara”, which the International Community has established as the objective of the negotiations, there is a need for perseverance, patience and creativity. The Frente POLISARIO will spare no effort to respond to the efforts of the international community and will ensure that this process of negotiations leads to establishing justice and international legality in Western Sahara as well as fraternity, harmony and neighborly relations between the Saharawi and Moroccan peoples and among all peoples of the Maghreb.The proposal presented by the Frente POLISARIO, which is on the table today, emanates from the will of the Saharawi political leadership to resolutely deploy its efforts in this historical perspective in order to overcome the throes of 32 years of conflict. It is with this spirit that the Frente POLISARIO has participated in this round of negotiations that ends today, and we will participate in future negotiations that are expected to take place during the second week of August 2007 in Manhasset.The Frente POLISARO is hopeful that our Moroccan brothers face up to history together with us by seizing on this historic window of opportunity that has opened for us. The Frente POLISARIO also wishes that the international community and the United Nations continue to assume fully their responsibilities regarding the completion of the decolonization process of Western Sahara.Thank you
