Morocco - Western Sahara - Adoption of UN Security Council resolution 2351 renewing the mandate of MINURSO (28 April 2017)


France welcomes the unanimous adoption by the UN Security Council on April 28 of resolution 2351 renewing for one year the mandate of MINURSO, whose action to promote peace and stability in the region we commend.

The resolution confirms the mission’s return to full functionality, as underscored in the report by the UN Secretary-General, whose involvement in this issue was a determining factor.

The adopted text reaffirms the need to immediately relaunch the UN-led political process aimed at achieving a just, lasting and mutually acceptable solution. France considers the autonomy plan presented by Morocco in 2007 to be a serious and credible base for a negotiated solution.
