This is a shipment that, according to plan, will depart from our country throughout this month with various material that will be delivered to the Saharawi people for use by citizens residing in the aforementioned territory.

The First Edil stressed that the collaboration of the people of Lorca with the Saharawi cause is an example to follow for the rest of Spain.

We have been, we are and we will be with this group because we really recognize them as a part of our history, and we share their objectives, and we especially emphasize the need to reach a diplomatic solution to the conflict existing in the territory of the Sahara.

We must underline the work that has been developed by the United Nations (UN) in this regard, materialized in multiple efforts over several decades that have as an example resolutions 1754 (2007), 1783 (2007), 1813 (2008), 1871 (2009) and 1920 (2010), and that has the most recent one made on April 28, 2017.

Fulgencio Gil explained that on behalf of the Municipal Council, two vehicles have been donated from the City's mobile park that will be used to serve this community in the desert.

It is about 2 municipal owned vans that had ceased their activity and, once set up by an Lorca workshop in an altruistic way, they are sent to the Sahara.

The consignment of articles will consist of 11 boxes of medicines of various kinds (apiretal, bivos, metformin ...) as well as 114 pairs of shoes, 25 boxes of school supplies, sacks, envelopes and seed pots for food cultivation, 10 hoes, 5 rakes, 20 sticks and 5 pruning shears, 17 macutos of sports equipment donated by the Unión Deportiva Almería and 9 boxes of toys.

The Mayor congratulated the Association of Friends of the Saharawi People for the effort and commitment shown each year to accentuate our status as a city of solidarity, contributing to strengthen the ties that unite us to the Sahara, because we must remember that Lorca is twinned with Wilaya El Aaiún and we even dedicate one of our squares to the Saharawi people.

Fulgencio Gil has expressed his support for the international proposals for the achievement of an international agreement on these territories, following the line of work of the UN in this regard, reaffirming the commitment of this body to help the parties to reach a just political solution, durable and mutually acceptable, providing for the self-determination of the people of Western Sahara within the framework of provisions in accordance with the principles and purposes of the Charter of the United Nations.

We must indicate the call to the parties and neighboring States by the UN to cooperate more fully with the United Nations and each other and intensify their involvement to end the current situation of stagnation and move towards a political solution.

It is about working to contribute to the stability and security of the Sahel region.
