“France is fully supporting this mission, which plays a vital role in promoting peace and stability in the region,” the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

“Resolution 2414 calls for the implementation of a fair, sustainable and mutually accepted political solution by all,” the ministry pointed out, adding that “France will continue to support to this end the action of the Personal Envoy of the UN Secretary-General, Horst Köhler”.

The Security Council adopted, on Friday afternoon, a resolution that extends the Minurso’s mandate for six months and reaffirms the pre-eminence of Morocco’s autonomy plan to move the process forward towards resolution.

In this resolution, the Security Council also expressed concern with the presence of the Polisario Front in the buffer strip in Guerguerat and called for its immediate withdrawal.
