Spain supports ‘mutually acceptable’ solution for Western Sahara -Sanchez

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez stated that Spain favors a “mutually acceptable political settlement” for Western Sahara.

“We completely support the work of the UN Secretary-Special General’s Envoy, which we believe is very critical,” Sanchez said during his statement to the United Nations General Assembly.

“Spain will also continue to support the Sahrawi population in the refugee camps as it always has done, as the main international donor of humanitarian assistance in this context.”

Earlier this year, Spain angered its main gas supplier Algeria by supporting a Moroccan plan to offer autonomy to Western Sahara. Morocco considers the whole territory its own, but an Algeria-backed independence movement demands a sovereign state.
