Talks To End Western Sahara Dispute Kick Off İn Geneva

Morocco, Algeria, Mauritania, and Polisario Front to participate in UN mediated negotiations.

By Bayram Altug


The first deliberations in six years to end the decades-long dispute in the Western Sahara region kicked off on Wednesday between regional countries mediated by the UN.


Former German President Horst Kohler, envoy of the UN secretary-general, commenced the roundtable meeting in Geneva to help achieve a "political, just, and lasting solution that provides for the self-determination of the Saharawi people."

The negotiations are being headed by the foreign ministers of Morocco, Algeria, Mauritania, and the Polisario Front, a separatist group that calls for the independence of Morocco's Western Sahara region on the northwest coast of Africa


The Western Sahara – a large territory in southern Morocco – has been the subject of dispute between Rabat and the Polisario Front for more than four decades.


After years of conflict, in 1991 the two parties signed a UN-backed cease-fire.


The Polisario, meanwhile, has long called for a popular referendum in Western Sahara to decide the region's political fate. -
