This is also the seat of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic government who are calling for a sovereign Western Sahara.

On Western Sahara, ICP Asks Italy If Kohler Explained Not Going to MINURSO, No By Matthew Russell Lee, Periscope, song UNITED NATIONS, November 22 – On Western Sahara after a long delay, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres named Horst Köhler as his Personal Envoy, replacing Christopher Ross.

On November 20, the UN implicitly confirmed what Inner City Press has first reported: Kohler did not visit Layoune, the seat of MINURSO. Then during the November 22 consultations, Inner City Press asked the UN spokesman for the third time why the UN Department of Public Information has denied access to the building to Western Sahara media. Spokesman Farhan Haq, while trying to cut off Inner City Press' question, confirmed this is the UN's policy. But it is just a statement on DPI's website, to which for example the Free UN Coalition for Access has never agreed. After the consultations, Horst Kohler and his factotum emerged, saying only, I am encouraged, then rushed down the hall with a UN Security officer assigned to him, unlike other UN envoys, due to his past position in Germany. This is waste. Later Italy's Ambassador Cardi summarized the meeting; Inner City Press asked if Kohler explained his failure to go to El-Ayoun / Laayoune. Apparently not. Moroccan state media tried to get more on "encouragement;" this is their privilege, unlike media of Western Sahara.

For more than forty years Western Sahara has been under dispute. A Spanish colony until 1975, its map reflects its complicated story. Resource rich territory in the north and along the western coastline are under Morocco’s control, and they claim it as their own. Across a dividing line known as the berm, land to the east is under the control of the armed Polisario Front which wants an independent and free state. And in neighbouring Algeria’s Tindouf province, some 150,000 Sahrawi refugees are living in camps. This is also the seat of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic government who are calling for a sovereign Western Sahara. This region was entrenched in guerilla war between the sides for two decades until the United Nations brokered a ceasefire in 1991, but the referendum that was meant to follow never happened. Earlier this month the Moroccan government, which must agree to the terms of any vote in order for it to take place, rejected independence for Western Sahara as an option. The United Nation’s Secretary General has recently called for “true negotiations” to end the deadlock and his special envoy is currently visiting the region. Claims of human rights abuses and growing extremism are adding to the concerns of the international community over this disputed area.
