17 February: 27 US Senators sign a letter to President Biden

United States Senate, Washington DC, 20510, 17 February 2021

On 17 February a letter signed by 27 US Senators was sent to President Biden urging him to reverse the decision by the previous administration on December 11, 2020 to officially recognize the Kingdom of Morocco’s illegitimate claims of sovereignty over Western Sahara.

The decision is decried as misguided and short-sighted in this strong letter of support for the Sahrawi people’s right to a referendum of self-determination
