UN “hopeful” political process can still move ahead in Western Sahara

15 December 2015

The UN remains “hopeful” the political process can still move ahead in Western Sahara, nearly 25 years after the peacekeeping mission was authorized there.

Western Sahara was administered by Spain until 1976, but then claimed by neighbouring countries; Morocco and Mauritania.

The UN Mission in Western Sahara (MINURSO) was established in 1991 to keep the peace in the region.

May Yaacoub spoke to Kim Bolduc, head of MINURSO, following her recent briefing to the Security Council.
