New York (AWN) | Morocco’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, Mr Abderrazzak Laassel, raised the topic of the Kabyle people’s rights to self-determination for the first time at the UN during the 70th Anniversary of the UN.
The second representative of the Moroccan delegation made a sensational statement to defend the right to self-determination of the Amazigh people of Kabyle in the north of Algeria, stated that it is a shame to see one of the most ancient peoples of Africa being deprived of the right to self-determination in the 21st century.
The Moroccan diplomat went on to support his plea by recalling Chapters 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the United Nations Declaration of Rights of Indigenous People (adopted on September 13, 2007 by the General Assembly).
On the other hand, Lyazid Abid, second in command of Kabylie’s provisional government (GPK) responded to Morocco’s Plea in favor of the self-determination of the Kabylie region. “I am glad to hear this plea since the main goal of the Kabylie’s provisional government (GPK) is to put the issue of Kabylie’s sovereignty on the UN’s table,”
