UN Talks on Western Sahara Ended Well - Envoy

The first UN-led talks in six years over the disputed Western Sahara-region concluded on a positive note on Thursday in Geneva, where the organisation's representative Horst Köhler said that further discussions are planned "in the first quarter of 2019". Köhler said the meeting was a "first - but important - step" towards a renewed political process on the future of the disputed territory.

Peacekeepers have been stationed in Western Sahara since 1991 when the UN mission, MINURSO, was established (file photo).
