We are working with our UN Security Council partners to support the UN-led process to reach a solution to the dispute over Western Sahara. The UK wants to see a lasting and mutually acceptable solution that provides for the self-determination of the people of Western Sahara. It is for the parties to the dispute to agree a solution.
