Published 03 August 2009


Bucharaya Hamoudi Beyoun says the Saharawi people "is not ready to discuss this proposal, nor with Morocco, or with the United Nations or any other party. "

"For the Western Sahara, the issue is not autonomy or not. It is a unfinished process of decolonization," said the Saharawi diplomat, adding that "what needs to be discussed is not the 'Moroccan offer but the resolutions of the international community that calling for giving the opportunity to the Sahrawi people to decide freely on their future. "

Mr. Beyoun asked the Spanish government to support the "new direction" of the USA, expressed by the President of the United States, Barack Obama, in his letter to Mohamed VI, at the beginning of July.

"Spain has a chance to change its position and to persuade Morocco to end its intransigence and cooperate in finding a solution to avoid a return to the tensions," he warned. (SPS)
