WINDHOEK, 22 MAY (NAMPA) – Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic Ambassador to Namibia, Malainine Sadik bid farewell to President Hage Geingob on Thursday.
He served as ambassador to Namibia and Angola for three years.
Speaking briefly to members of the media shortly after their closed-door meeting, he said his term of office has come to an end.
“I am here to bid farewell to President Hage Geingob after finishing my mission of duty as ambassador.
“It was an opportunity for me to call on the President of the Republic of Namibia Dr Hage Geingob to express to him and through him to the Namibian people and Government for the support and solidarity which they have always shown towards the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, towards the Saharawi people and towards the Polisario Front for their struggle to self determination and independence,” said Sadik.
He also expressed satisfaction about the good relations existing between Namibia and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, which he said, dates back to the struggle against foreign occupation in Africa.
The Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic is a partially recognised state that controls a thin strip of area in the Western Sahara region and claims sovereignty over the entire territory of Western Sahara, a former Spanish colony.
He will be leaving Namibia sometime this month.
