UNSC resolution 2218 on Sahara, 'failure of Algerian diplomacy'

Madrid - The latest resolution by the UN Security Council on the Sahara, extending the MINURSO mandate, is a failure of the Algerian diplomacy, wrote Spanish website "Nuevatribuna.es".

The call by the UNSC on Algeria to join efforts seeking to find a political solution to the Sahara conflict and allow a census of populations in the camps of Tindouf (south Algeria) is a setback for the Algerian diplomacy, it said.

The resolution 2218, approved unanimously on Apr. 28 by the UNSC member states, is a clear example of the failure of all maneuvers by Algeria to hamper any political solution to the Sahara conflict, it added.

The author also recalled that the said resolution highlights undeniable efforts by Morocco to uphold human rights on its soil through local committees under the national council for human rights (CNDH).
