The margin of Polisario's decision is "extremely limited", as it is at the mercy of Algeria, said Khalihenna Ould Errachid, chairman of the Royal Advisory Council for Saharan Affairs (CORCAS). "Polisario is on Algerian territory. It is funded and guided by Algeria and certainly the one who finances is the one who commands," said Ould Errachid in a press statement Tuesday in Manhasset (New York), at the end of the 4th round of negotiations on the Sahara. As for Algeria, it says, on the one hand, want to seek a solution to the Sahara conflict to promote the building of the Arab Maghreb, but on the other hand, it provides no effort to facilitate the process of negotiations and back the efforts aimed at finding a political settlement to this issue, he noted.

 Several Saharan groups denounce Polisario provocations  3/18/2008

Several political, community and human rights groups from the Saharan provinces have denounced "Polisario" provocation in Tifariti in the Moroccan Sahara and called on Algeria to stop undermining efforts to seeking a final political solution to the Sahara issue. In statements to the MAP, these groups said that the provocations by the "Polisario" is a desperate attempt seeking to influence the 4th round of negotiations in Manhasset that Morocco went to with good faith on the basis of the Moroccan autonomy initiative. Polisario acts spring from its bad faith and its determination, along with its protector, Algeria, to impede any settlement of the Sahara issue, and go against the international community which welcomed the Moroccan proposal, they added.
