MINURSO: "We believe the current dynamic is positive"
MINURSO – Remarks to the press by Mr. François Delattre,
Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations
11 October 2018
Question on MINURSO
On MINURSO, we believe the current trend, the current dynamic is positive. There is a momentum. It is necessary to build on this momentum. That is France’s position.
In this respect, we fully support the efforts by Personal Envoy Horst Köhler and Special Representative Colin Stewart.
So, quite stability on the ground on one side; political momentum on the other side; this is on these two trends that we want to build.
Question: Does this mean a one-year renewal, or six months?
France’s position is to promote a one-year renewal, in line with the UN Secretary General recommendation.
