New York, Sep 17, 2017 (SPS) -A delegation of the Polisario Front, led by the Sahrawi coordinator with the MINURSO Mhamed Khdead held talks Thursday in New York with the United Nations Envoy for Western Sahara Horst Kohler.
The talks, attended by Representative of the Polisario Front at the UN Ahmed Boukhari, allowed an exchange of viewpoints and information on the UN process in Western Sahara.
This first official meeting also focused on the prospects of this process as part of the mission entrusted to Kohler by the UN Security Council and Secretary General to find a fair and sustainable solution guaranteeing the Sahrawi people’s inalienable right to self-determination and independence.
The Polisario Front reiterated its willingness to cooperate with the UN Secretary General’s envoy, with a view to resolving the Sahrawi issue.
The new UN envoy, which succeeds to Christopher Ross, is expected to present his first report on Western Sahara within six months.
In last April, the UN SG promised to reopen negotiations, which stopped in 2012, “with a new impetus.”
The SC also urged the General Secretariat to facilitate direct negotiations between the two parties, which should lead to the self-determination of the Sahrawi people. (SPS)
