Instead of striving to put right a historic error, namely accepting the phoney SADR entity, the AU is mistakenly persisting in this unwise attempt to meddle in the domestic affairs of a sovereign state (Morocco) which does not belong to that organization, said the expert.

Peter Pham said that he can not explain why the AU is trying to become involved in a matter that does not come under its jurisdiction, it cannot claim any legal competence or expertise in this area. He said that the African Union has showed its inability and incompetence to solve the crises plaguing the continent. The AU can bring nothing to the table of negotiations on the Sahara issue as part of the process which is moving inexorably towards a realistic settlement of this conflict," he added.
