Sahara: Basque Nationalist Party calls Polisario to take stock of recent geostrategic changes

The Basque Nationalist Party (PNV) on Wednesday urged the Algeria-backed Polisario front to realize the geostrategic changes that swept over the world in recent years and to understand “what is possible and what is impossible” to reach a solution to the Sahara issue.

“The world has changed a lot in recent years. Thus, we must make the Polisario understand what is now possible and what is impossible” for the settlement of the Sahara issue, said the spokesperson for the Basque Nationalist Party at the Spanish Congress of Deputies Aitor Esteban.


“From a geostrategic point of view, the Polisario has lost (…) so it must seek a solution within the framework of the possible” to settle this dispute, he insisted during a debate held in the presence of the head of the Spanish government Pedro Sanchez, and several members of the executive.


“No one can deny the increasingly asserted geostrategic importance of Morocco, in the fight against terrorism and illegal immigration and other areas,” said Esteban, stressing the imperative need to preserve a good relationship with Morocco, “an important country” for Spain and the EU.
