The President of the Republic of Namibia declared support of his country for the right of the Saharawi people to self-determination, stressing that the delay in implementing UN resolutions to settle the question of Western Sahara is an embarrassment to the forehead of the international community.
Addressing the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly, President Hage Geingob of Namibia, in his speech, described the lack of action and the continuation of the conflict in Western Sahara as a collective shame.
Western Sahara is a disputed territory on the northwest coast and in the Maghreb region of North and West Africa. About 20% of the territory is controlled by the self-proclaimed Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, while the remaining 80% of the territory is occupied and administered by neighboring Morocco.
Morocco has claimed authority over Western Sahara since 1975, but the United Nations (UN) does not recognize Moroccan control, calling Western Sahara a “non-self-governing territory.” Morocco controls the most populous area along the Atlantic coastline, more than three-quarters of the territory.
