When more than a week has passed since the cases against her for the 'Gali case' were filed, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs, EU and Cooperation, Arancha González Laya, avoided speaking yesterday in an interview for the Brussels edition of 'Politico ', due to Spain's change of position on Western Sahara, which Pedro Sánchez took two months ago, when he recognized Morocco's sovereignty over this territory. A historic twist that was the government's bargaining chip for reconciliation with Morocco.
On this matter, Laya declared: "It is important to comply with international law, because that is the best antidote against politics based on power." When asked if that also included the UN decision, according to which Western Sahara has the right to be independent from Morocco, he said: "The UN is the embodiment of international law and a rule-based international order."
Now you feel free to speak. A few days ago, he stated in 'El Correo' that he does not regret that Spain welcomed the Polisario leader: "He is a Spanish citizen who needed help." Yesterday he highlighted it again: «Humanitarian decisions are governmental, not personal. I was in charge of foreign policy, but what I did was the expression of a government policy».
