The African Union notes the importance of the judgment of the European Union Court of Justice on the exploitation of the natural resources of Western Sahara and calls for renewed international efforts to address this issue

Addis Ababa, 12 December 2015: The Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union (AU), Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, notes the importance of the judgment of the European Union (EU) Court of Justice of 10 December 2015, which annulled the trade deal in agricultural and fisheries products, concluded, in March 2012, between the Kingdom of Morocco and the EU, due to its inclusion of Western Sahara. It should be recalled that Western Sahara has been inscribed since 1963 on the list of territories to which the UN General Assembly resolution 1514 (XV) of 14 December 1960 on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and People applies.
