People National Assembly affirmed that the “provocative move” that Morocco made by distributing a document to the representatives of the member states of the Non-Aligned Movement claiming the “right to self-determination of the Kabyle people” reflects its “absolute failure” in its attempt to obliterate the historical right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination.
In a statement issued today, Sunday, the Assembly noted with great astonishment ” the provocative move committed by the Makhzen regime by distributing a document through its ambassador to the United Nations to representatives of the member states of the Non-Aligned Movement, which constitutes a blatant contradiction with diplomatic norms by claiming the ‘right to self-determination of the Kabyle people.” And which reflects its absolute failure in its attempts to obliterate the historical facts relating to the right of the Sahrawi people to self-determination.
This document – the statement adds – “reflects the discomfort of regional and international parties about the level of stability achieved by the Algerian state under the leadership of the President of the Republic, Mr. Abdelmadjid Tebboune, and the extent to which the Algerian people adhere to their unity, homogeneity, identity, historical and national symbols, and its determination to achieve the message of the martyrs of the revolution and national duty.” .
The same source stressed that “the plots and sedition that the Makhzen regime has been planning to destabilize the countries of the region and its dissemination of false allegations will but increase the Algerian people’s adherence to their unity and their authentic identity.”
The statement added, “Plotting against Algeria and its people is useless, neither in changing the reality of the brotherly Moroccan people and their multiple sufferings, nor in trying to divert the attention of the international community from the Makhzen regime’s violations of human rights and further plundering of the riches and resources of the occupied Sahrawi people,” noting that “all this will increase Algeria’s determination to continue to defend just causes and to empower the brotherly Sahrawi people of their right to self-determination.”
The Council of the Nation reminds the Makhzen regime that Algeria “was and still is a land of freedom and continuous struggle for development, prosperity and progress, and its firm stance stemming from international legitimacy, good neighborliness and human solidarity makes it a fortress of security and peace and a reference in absolute respect for sovereignty and non-interference in the internal affairs of states as well as the resolution of disputes by peaceful means and the defense of the rights of colonial peoples to self-determination in accordance with the United Nations Charter and Resolution 1514 of the United Nations General Assembly and all relevant resolutions.
The issue of Western Sahara – the same source affirms – is “registered as a decolonization case with the Fourth Committee of the United Nations, and resolution 690 of April 1991 established the MINURSO mission to organize a referendum for self-determination.”
The Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic is also – the statement adds – “a founding and active member of the African Union in a way that strengthened the legitimacy of the Sahrawi struggle and entered the Makhzen regime into cycles of crises and diplomatic failures that made it resort to normalization with the Zionist entity and continue its attempts to undermine the stability of the countries of the region.”
