The paper said, in an article published on Thursday, that the stance of the Chilean parliament belies the Polisario’s allegations, noting that the self-determination referendum claimed by the separatist front became inapplicable over the years.

The publication recalls that the Chilean Senate underlined in a resolution adopted on Jan. 9, 2018, that the broad autonomy plan proposed by the Kingdom to settle the dispute over the Sahara leads to a “win-win situation” and enables the Sahara’s population to manage their affairs in a democratic, inclusive and participatory manner.

For its part, Chile’s National Congress stressed in a resolution adopted on Jan. 3, 2018, that the Moroccan initiative is “a serious and credible effort, which will undoubtedly enable the Sahara population to exercise their right to self-determination, by democratically managing their own affairs through legislative, executive and judicial bodies with exclusive powers under the sovereignty of Morocco”, it added.
