Morocco, Polisario agree to new talks

Morocco and the Polisario Front on Tuesday (February 2nd) agreed to hold a new round of informal Western Sahara talks next week in New York, the UN announced. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon "is pleased that the parties have accepted the proposal made by his Personal Envoy, Christopher Ross", MAP quoted Ban spokesperson Farhan Haq as saying at a press briefing. Ban encouraged the parties to conduct "focussed and productive discussions" at the UN-brokered negotiations on February 10th, Haq added.

Morocco and the Polisario Front held the first informal meeting last August in Austria. Delegations from Algeria and Mauritania also attended the "restricted" informal session mediated by the UN Western Sahara envoy.
