Polisario urges for MINURSO to organize referendum for self-determination in Western Sahara

The Polisario Front called on the United Nations to allow the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) protecting human rights in Western Sahara, said a statement issued following a Polisario National Secretariat meeting, chaired by its Secretary General Mohamed Abdelaziz.

The United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) was established by Security Council resolution 690 of 29 April 1991 in accordance with settlement proposals accepted on 30 August 1988 by Morocco and the Frente Popular para la Liberación de Saguia el-Hamra y de Río de Oro (Frente POLISARIO). It is the only UN mission without a component to survey and protect human rights.
