NAM leaders reassert support for people s right to self-determination
Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) leaders reasserted their support for "the fundamental and inalienable right" of all peoples, including those in non-self-governing territories, or living under foreign occupation and colonial or alien domination to self-determination.
In Sharm Sheikh Declaration, adopted at the Summit s closing session, the NAM leaders pointed out that they aim at "guaranteeing the legitimate and fundamental right of peoples under foreign occupation and colonial or alien domination, so as to ensure the eradication of all these situations and guarantee the universal respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms."
The Participants also adopted all the recommendations adopted by the General Assembly and the Security Council on Western Sahara, and the recommendation of the General Assembly 62/116, which was unanimously adopted.
They expressed their willingness to strongly support the efforts of the Secretary General and his Personal Envoy to reach a mutually acceptable political solution that guarantees the right to self-determination for the Saharawi people in connection with the observance of the principles and objectives of the United Nations Charter and the recommendations of the General Assembly 15/14 of the Assembly on December 14, 1960 and other relevant recommendations.
The Heads of States have considered all options available to self-determination remain valid as long as they respect the freely expressed will of the people concerned and the principles defined in the recommendations of the UN General Assembly. "
