Polisario Front welcomes the appointment of Christopher Ross

Polisario Front welcomed, in a statement Thursday, the appointment of Mr Christopher Ross as UN Secretary General’s Personal Envoy for Western Sahara.

"Polisario Front reaffirms its readiness to cooperate with Christopher Ross and will provide all necessary assistance in order to complete the process of decolonization of Western Sahara in accordance with United Nations’ resolutions," POLISARIO’s statement published by the Saharawi official press Agency, SPS, indicated.

For Polisario, "all the resolutions of the General Assembly and the Security Council reiterate that the conflict in Western Sahara should be resolved through the exercise by the Saharawi people of its inalienable rights to self-determination".

The statement said Polisario has always "supported and encouraged the implementation of the Settlement Plan, the Houston Accords and Baker plan for self-determination of the people of Western Sahara, all these plans been unanimously supported by the Security Council."

It also regretted that Morocco has "blocked and rejected all these plans and, so far, blocked the appointment of Mr. Christopher Ross."

The UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, Wednesday informed the Security Council of the appointment of the American diplomat, Christopher Ross, as a personal envoy for Western Sahara, said the spokesperson of Secretary-General, Michele Montas, in a statement made public on the website of the United Nations.
