The European Court of Justice has annulled two trade agreements between the European Union and Morocco based on a lawsuit brought by the Polisario Front, which is demanding independence for Western Sahara.

The court based its decision on the fact that the two agreements were signed “without the consent of the people of Western Sahara”.

The representative of the Polisario in the European Union, Abi al-Bashir, welcomed the court’s decision. He said on his Twitter account that it represented a “great victory for the Sahrawi people”.

After the court’s decision, Morocco and the European Union issued a joint statement, affirming the continuation of their commercial partnership.
