US role for Western Sahara

The article "Western Sahara Dispute Delays UN Peace Plan," March 17, did not mention the role of the United States government in the crisis. Washington has been sending economic and military aid to Morocco despite that country's illegal occupation of Western Sahara and its current efforts to block, delay, and rig the impending plebiscite.

It is worthwhile to mention that no country in the world formally recognizes Morocco's claim over Western Sahara. Washington should tell the Moroccan government and King Hassan to get out of Western Sahara or face a total cutoff of military and and economic assistance. Payam Foroughi, Salt Lake City
