MOSCOW, November 22 (Itar-Tass) — Russia is ready to assist the Western Sahara settlement, the Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday in comment on a Moscow meeting of Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov and the Algerian ambassador.
“Russia confirmed its adherence to the promotion of a fair, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution, which will ensure self-determination of the people of Western Sahara in compliance with the principles and goals of the UN Charter,” the ministry said.
“The interlocutors discussed topical aspects of Russia-Algeria interaction at international organizations, primarily the UN,” the ministry said. “They also pondered the current situation in North Africa and the Middle East.”
“Russia confirmed its wish for the exclusively political settlement of problems in a number of regional countries with the broad dialog devoid of any external interference,” the ministry said.
