The UN envoy for the disputed Western Sahara region visited refugee camps in Algeria on Saturday in a renewed bid to find a diplomatic solution to the territory which was annexed by Morocco in 1975. A tweet by UN News explained that while in the region he would also meet with Moroccan officials in Rabat and officials of the Polisario front, which has been fighting for independence for the disputed territory for decades. Ahead of their meeting, the organisation’s Representative to the United Nations said that the only way forward would be to end the current conflict, and ensure the implementation of the resolutions signed by both sides.
