Namibia Raises Voice World Must Sort Out Western Sahara Issue


Namibian President Hage Geingob urges the world once again the protracted Western Sahara issue goes still unsolved and need to be sorted out.

While addressing to a conference of the African-European party dialogue of socialists and democrats the president said the country’s stance is hoped to be followed by Europeans and other African nations to stand against Morocco’s illegal occupation of the region.

Recently Morocco was admitted again into the African Union.

National Assembly Speaker Professor Peter Katjavivi echoed the stance of Geingob too for the global community to support the people of Western Sahara for their right to self-determination.

Next month the Namibian parliament will attend the Interparliamentary Union (Union) Conference in Russia and it is believed the self-determination agenda for the people of Western Sahara will be raised.

Katjavivi said, “All member parliaments are going to be there. We are interested to see that the voice of the people of Western Sahara is heard.”

Namibia has a long history of good relationship with European progressive movements.

Katjavivi added that throughout the political malaise during Africa’s struggle against colonial rule the European progressives maintained unwavering commitment towards the independence struggle of Namibia.

Geingob said even though they have gained political independence, but the struggle still exists and so support in struggle for economic independence is needed.
