On the occasion of the celebration in Toledo, about 80 kilometers from this capital, of the 47th European Conference of Support and Solidarity with the Saharawi People, Hamudi Beyun gave a press conference in which he insisted the Spanish government not to align itself with the Moroccan thesis.
He underlined the importance of supporting the right of self-determination of the Saharawi people and not to continue to side with Rabat in its occupation of the SADR territories.
Hamudi Beyun, member of the National Secretariat of the Polisario Front, accompanied by the Polisario Front official in Europe, Omar Mansur, insisted on the need for Spain to respect the decision of the UN to organize a referendum, ‘more necessary than ever given the military escalation of Morocco and the action of terrorist groups in the Sahel’.
At the end of 2022, the Executive headed by the Socialist Pedro Sanchez abandoned its position on its former colony of Western Sahara, and sided with Morocco’s 2007 autonomy proposal for that territory, which it valued as the ‘most serious, credible and realistic’ to resolve the conflict that arose in 1975.
During the last Polisario Congress, the decision was taken to continue the armed struggle, in spite of the support achieved by Rabat with Spain and France.
