EU Welcomes Adoption by UNSC of Resolution 2351 on Sahara Issue

The European Union (EU) welcomes the adoption by the UN Security Council (UNSC) of resolution 2351 on the Sahara issue, said a spokesperson of the EU.

“The European Union welcomes the adoption by the UN Security Council of the resolution on the renewal of MINURSO’s mandate until April 30th, 2018,” the spokesperson told MAP.

The EU says it encourages the parties “to use the window of opportunity created by this decision as well as by the withdrawal of military forces from the Guerguerat area, to work for a lasting peace,” she added.

“In the interest of stability and security in the region, the European Union will renew its support for the efforts of the UN Secretary-General” aimed at achieving a just, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution to the Sahara issue, under arrangements that are consistent with the principles and purposes of the UN Charter, calling on all parties to respect the terms of the ceasefire, said the EU official.
