Security Council Wants UN Mission in Western Sahara at ‘Full Capacity’

The Security Council called Thursday for the UN mission in Western Sahara to resume working at "full capacity," its first statement following a dispute between Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Rabat.

The United Nations said Tuesday it closed its military liaison office in Dakhla, Western Sahara at the request of Morocco, which was angered when Ban referred to the “occupation” of the disputed territory. The 15 Security Council member states called for the issue to be addressed “in a constructive, comprehensive and cooperative manner so that MINUSRO may resume its full capacity to carry out its mandate,” AFP reported.
