Moroccan regime responsible for tension in Guerguerat, says Sahrawi Prime Minister | Sahara Press Service

Nouakchott, Dec 30, 2016 (SPS) – Sahrawi Prime Minister Abdelkader Taleb Omar attributed to the Moroccan regime the responsibility for the tension in the region of Guerguerat in the south of Western Saharan, affirming that the Polisario Front decided to send troops to put an end to Morocco’s attempts to encroach upon the border strip with Mauritania.

In an interview granted to the Mauritanian new agency “Alakhbar,” Taleb Omar attributed to the Moroccan regime the responsibility for the tension in Guerguerat following the violation of the ceasefire agreement concluded with Western Sahara under the aegis of the United Nations, underlining that “the Polisario Front sent its troops to the region after informing the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO), which was unable to stop the new manoeuvres of the Moroccan regime aimed at changing things by exerting pressure and imposing the fait accompli in the city of Lagouira.”

“This crisis started when the Moroccan regime encroached upon the border strip with Mauritania by asphalting a road extending to the Mauritanian borders,” said the Sahrawi Prime Minister, adding that the Moroccan regime “had the intention to set up barbed wires to isolate this region to the Atlantic coasts.”

In a reply to a question on what was said by the secretary general of the Moroccan party Istiqlal who said that “Mauritania is a Moroccan land,” Taleb Omar underlined that “this statement cannot be dissociated from the development of the situation in Gueguerat,” “as it cannot be dissociated from the policy of the use of force, verbal violence and blackmail, which led the Sahrawi government to denounce and refuse the expansionist policy of the Moroccan regime.” (SPS)
