AU reiterates support for just struggle of Saharawi people

Boumerdes, July 26, 2015 (SPS) - The new Ambassador of Zimbabwe to Algeria and the Saharawi Republic, Mr. Edwin J. Mendaza, which his country holds the rotating presidency of the African Union, reiterated Saturday the support of his country for the just struggle of the Saharawi people for liberation and independence during his address to the sixth edition of the summer university of Sahrawi executives.

"On behalf of the African diplomatic corps accredited in Algeria, we wish to reiterate the support for the legitimate struggle of the Saharawi people for self-determination and independence," said the ambassador of Zimbabwe.

"The African Union has been alongside the Saharawi people since the early hours, and will remain by its side until the recovery of its liberation and independence, so the decolonization of Africa is incomplete as Western Sahara, the last mainland colony, is under occupation, "he added. (SPS)
