Senegal Welcomes Renewal of MINURSO Mandate, Lauds Moroccan Autonomy Plan

Senegal has welcomed the resolution adopted by the UN Security Council which renews the mandate of the MINURSO, adding that Morocco’s autonomy plan is a “serious and realistic” initiative towards the settlement of this artificial conflict.

 

Senegal’s ambassador to the UN Fode Seck said, in a statement, the UN resolution “maintains hope for the continuation of the political process, which is the only way to reach a lasting settlement,” Senegal’s APS news agency reported.

 

The Moroccan autonomy plan “will help resuming the negotiations process between the parties in order to reach a lasting and mutually acceptable solution in accordance with the UN Charter,” he added.

 

Senegal is a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the period 2016-2017.
