According to the UN, Morocco maintains a significant security presence in Western Sahara, primarily in fortified positions along a berm running the entire length of the territory. The UK regularly discusses the situation in Western Sahara with the parties. We continue to urge the parties to avoid further escalation, return to a ceasefire and re-engage with the UN-led political process.
