Western Sahara: Polisario Front, Morocco to resume direct negotiations on 4-5 December, Geneva


“The two sides to the conflict in Western Sahara, the Polisario Front and Morocco, accepted to participate in direct negotiations in Geneva,” announced United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

The two sides to the conflict, namely; the Polisario Front and Morocco, accepted to participate in direct negotiations on 4-5 December in Geneva, said UN Chief in his preliminary reports on Western Sahara.

The official highlighted the key and pivotal role of the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) to solve the crisis and reach a lasting political solution by organizing a referendum on self-determination.

“MINURSO remains a key element of UN efforts to achieve a fair, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution to the conflict in Western Sahara, which guarantees the Sahrawi people’s self determination,” said Guterres in the recommendations of the preliminary report on Western Sahara.

While reaffirming MINURSO’s mandate, Guterres puts an end to the controversy created by Morocco which wants to reduce UN’s mission to the role of monitoring ceasefire.

Besides, United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres asked the Security Council to extend the mission’s mandate by one year.

“I recommend that the Council extend the mandate of Minurso by one year, until 31 October 2019, in order to give my emissary the space and time necessary to meet conditions that will allow the political process to move forward,” he wrote in this document addressed to the Security Council.
