Portuguese parliament approves motion supporting Sahrawi self-determination

Portuguese parliament approved a motion in support of Sahrawi independence and self-determination last week, reports the Sahara Press Service.

During a plenary session on 11 May Portuguese Members of parliament supported a motion calling on the government to promote actions to achieve the Sahrawi people’s right to self-determination, as part of finding a lasting solution to the conflict that ended Morocco’s illegal occupation of Western Sahara and ongoing rights abuses.
