UN welcomes moves to restart negotiations on Western Sahara
United Nations, Nov 1 (AP) The UN Security Council has approved a resolution welcoming stepped up efforts to try to restart negotiations to end the 42-year conflict over the mineral-rich Western Sahara between Morocco and the Polisario Front.
A peacekeeping mission established to monitor it was also mandated to help prepare a referendum on the territory's future that has never taken place.
Bolivia's UN Ambassador Sasha Llorentty Soliz welcomed an upcoming roundtable of key parties but complained that the resolution neglected the crucial issue of self-determination of the people of Western Sahara. (AP)
