US violates Intl. law regarding Western Sahara

TEHRAN, Dec. 11 (MNA) – Moscow says that the US has violated international law by recognizing Morocco's sovereignty over the disputed region of Western Sahara.

Washington's recognition of Morocco's sovereignty over the disputed region of Western Sahara is a violation of international law, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Friday, Sputnik reported.

"This is a violation of international law. There are relevant resolutions, there is a UN mission for holding a referendum in Western Sahara. Everything that Americans currently do is a unilateral decision that goes beyond international law and decisions of the United Nations Security Council's resolution, which Americans themselves supported", Bogdanov told reporters.

On Thursday, US President Donald Trump announced that he had brokered a peace deal between the Zionist regime and Morocco and granted the latter the recognition of its sovereignty over Western Sahara, which is contested by the Polisario Front, the movement behind the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.
