PCP condemns US support for the occupation of Western Sahara

The PCP strongly condemns the support of the United States Administration to the occupation of Western Sahara by the Kingdom of Morocco, in return for it to normalise relations with Israel, which for decades has illegally occupied Palestinian territories and oppresses the Palestinian people.

The unacceptable recognition of the occupation of Western Sahara by Morocco, now declared by the Trump Administration, is part of the US policy of consistent affront against the sovereignty and rights of peoples and, consequently, against international law.

The difficulties and stalemates surrounding the approval of these financial instruments, and the way in which they were overcome, confirm contradictions and problems indissociable from the nature of the European Union, which are far from being resolved and which go beyond obvious divergences with Hungary and Poland.
