The visit was very useful because it enabled us to put forward and exchange views in a frank and serious way. I want to say that the Socialist Parliamentary Group in the Andalusian parliament knows and understands the situation and the problem in the Sahara. We want a solution that respects international law and UN report. We also hope it will be agreed upon by all parties, a solution that will guarantee interests of all Sahrawis. In this direction, we are ready for cooperation and assistance, and we wish to make further efforts to promote transparency and openness between the Andalusian and Moroccan peoples to view the situation accurately.
