Ramaphosa in turn calls on Biden to cancel US recognition of the Moroccan character of the Sahara

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday called on new American President Joe Biden to cancel the American recognition of Morocco’s sovereignty over the Sahara, calling it “illegal”. During a meeting of the ANC’s national executive committee, Ramaphosa pleaded for a “rapid annulment” of this decision which “would impose a so-called Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara”.

Also at the head of the rotating presidency of the African Union, the South African president said “to welcome the positive commitment made by the American president, Joe Biden to renew the mode of collaboration of his country with the rest of the world “. He thus expressed his “concern about the lack of progress in the process of resolving the conflict in Western Sahara”.

Cyril Ramaphosa also assured that his country intends to “intensify” its efforts within the African Union to “guarantee the Saharawi people their right to self-determination”.

On Wednesday January 20, Naledi Pandor, South African Minister of Foreign Affairs, sent a message to the new tenant of the White House, asking for the cancellation of the administration’s recognition of the Moroccan character of the Sahara. “This decision is contrary to the resolutions of the United Nations which demanded a referendum – which was delayed by about three decades – on the status of Western Sahara,” she said.
