The UK supports UN-led efforts to reach a just, lasting, and mutually acceptable political solution, based on compromise, that provides for the self-determination of the people of Western Sahara. We strongly support the work of the new Personal Envoy, Staffan de Mistura, and look forward to the start of the renewed political process.
