Morocco's ambassador, Permanent Representative in the United Nations, Omar Hilale, said, Friday at the UN headquarters in New York, that "there will be no political process for the settlement of the Sahara issue if there is only one trace of the polisario at Guerguarat."
"We are giving the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO), and especially the MINURSO, the time of this weekend to make sure that any trace of the polisario in Guerguarat is removed," Hilale told a press conference following the unanimous adoption by the Security Council of resolution 2351, extending the MINURSO mandate for one year (until April 30th, 2018).
"There will be no discussion with anybody, including the United Nations. We trust the DPKO and the MINURSO. It was they who confirmed, this evening, the departure of all the polisario elements” from Guerguarat.
"We do not want the DPKO and the MINURSO to condone deception and cheating," said the Moroccan official.
