Spain’s government faces rejection to change of position on Sahara

Madrid, Mar 30 (Prensa Latina) The attempts on Wednesday by President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sanchez, to ease the rejection to the change of position on Western Sahara seemed fruitless in Congress.

Sanchez, at his own request, attended the hemicycle to state the parliamentarians details of the European Council of the previous week, the NATO Summit and the relations with Morocco, this last point directly linked to follow Rabat’s plan regarding the Saharawi people.

The Moncloa Palace announced its attachment to Morocco’s 2007 autonomy proposal for Western Sahara, flatly rejected by the Polisario Front.

Commenting on this issue, the United Nations stressed that the only program on the matter is the proposal within the world organization.

Colonial power in Western Sahara until 1975, Spain justified this new step to achieve with Morocco to control the irregular emigration to Spain, but as it prepares to normalize ties with Rabat, the reactions have been negative, particularly from Algeria, and almost all the national political parties.

In fact, shortly after Sanchez addressed in Congress, in the vicinity of the building, Deputy Spokesperson and Secretary of State for United We Can bloc, Enrique Santiago, and United Left party legislator Miguel Angel Bustamante led a rally in support for the Saharawi people.
