Sahrawi President Brahim Ghali hailed Tunisia’s commitment to the principles and requirements of the Constitutive Act of the African Union, welcoming its position in dealing with the Western Sahara issue with clarity and impartiality, despite “overt” attempts to sow confusion and discord.
In a letter addressed to his Tunisian counterpart, Kais Saied, yesterday, Sunday, at the end of the proceedings of the Eighth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD 8), President Ghali expressed his appreciation and gratitude for the warm welcome, noting that the Sahrawi people “will always remembered that without any fear you dealt with its cause with honesty, transparency, clarity and impartiality, despite overt attempts to sow confusion and discord, as well as doubts about the credibility of a sound and consistent Tunisian position, not only with the Constitutive Act of the African Union and its decisions, but with the generous and hospitable history of Tunisia.
He added in his letter : “I would like to particularly commend your commitment, respect and full adherence to the principles and requirements of the Constitutive Act of the African Union and its decisions in general, and in particular those related to partnerships to which the Union is a party.”
The Sahrawi president also praised Tunisia’s success in hosting the Tokyo Summit for African Development.
Mr. Ghali concluded his message by saying, “We are very optimistic that our presence in Tunisia will open promising prospects for strengthening the relations of brotherhood, friendship and cooperation between the two brotherly peoples in Tunisia and Western Sahara,” expressing his confidence that Tunisia “will be able to play a pivotal role in order to establish peace, stability, integration and harmony in the entire Maghreb region on clear foundations of mutual respect and good neighborliness among all its countries.
