Algeria: Tebboune does not forget the Polisario in a message to the UN


All opportunities are good for the Algerian President, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, to mention directly or allusively, the Sahara issue. As evidenced by his message to participants in the high-level segment of the Security Council on the fight against terrorism and violent extremism, especially in the Sahel, held Tuesday, March 28 at UN headquarters in New York. A meeting chaired by the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres.

With his hat of coordinator of the African Union on the prevention and fight against terrorism, inherited from his predecessor late Abdelaziz Bouteflika, the head of state has deviated from the theme of the meeting to advocate for the Polisario. “The terrorist threat must not be equated with the legitimate struggle of peoples under occupation to regain their legitimate rights, first and foremost their inalienable and imprescriptible right to self-determination and independence enshrined in international law,” he said in his text.

In his speech before the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, held in New York in September 2022, the head of the Moroccan government, Aziz Akhannouch had condemned “the proven and confirmed links between the separatist militias (Polisario, editor’s note) and the dangerous terrorist networks in the Sahel region.
