EU Reps Vist the "Occupied Territories"

Thanks to EP.

No, not in the "Palestinian Territories Occupied by Israel" or the "Occupied Palestinian Territory" or in "Zionist-Occupied Palestine".

The territory in Sahrawi, Morocco.

Western Sahara.

El Aaiun (Occupied Territories), January 18, 2014 (SPS) -  A delegation including representatives of Canadian, Norwegian and Swiss embassies in Rabat, Morocco, met Thursday in the occupied city of El Aaiun with Sahrawi Association for Victims of Gross Human Rights Violations Committed by the Moroccan State (ASVDH), according to the Ministry of Occupied Territories and Community Abroad...The meeting discussed the situation related to human rights in the occupied territories of Western Sahara, violent crackdown  against peaceful vigils and demonstrations organized by Sahrawis and violations of fundamental rights such as the right to assembly and association, freedom of opinion and expression.

You really do not hear much about that occupation, or the one in Cyprus and news like this
Cypriot MEP Eleni Theocharous has urged parliament to consider suspending its relations with Turkey.  The EPP member says the move is justified because of Turkish intentions to freeze its relations with the new Cyprus presidency of the EU.
She said, "Parliament should consider the possibility of suspending their relations with Turkey. "It must not be forgotten that this country continues to ignore and disrespect the Republic of Cyprus and the EU and its institutions.
"This is the least that can be done as a matter of principle and self-respect."

One day, they will come to visit the Jewish Arab-occupied territories.
