That this House recognises the right of the people of Western Sahara to their own self-determination; urges the UK as a member of the group of friends to redouble UN Security Council efforts to deliver the referendum on which the 1991 ceasefire in that region was contingent; stands in solidarity with the Sahrawi both in Western Sahara, the refugee camps in Algeria and the diaspora; deplores the unilateral action of US President Trump’s administration supporting Morocco’s illegal claim to occupy Western Sahara; and calls on the UK government to adhere to international law and refuse to follow the dangerous and illegal path that president Trump has embarked on in relation to Western Sahara.
