Tanzania urges UNSC to resolve Western Sahara question once and for all

New York, Sept 26, 2014 (SPS) - President of the United Republic of Tanzania, H.E. Mr. Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, on Thursday reiterated his appeal to the Security Council of the United Nations Organization to resolve the question of Western Sahara.
In his address at the general debate of the 69th session of the UN General Assembly, Mr. Kikwete reiterated the appeal his country (Tanzania) made last year at the UNGA to the United Nations Security Council “to do everything within its powers to resolve this problem once and for all.”
He lamented for the fact that the issue of Western Sahara, which happened about the same time with that of East Timor nearly 40 years ago, remain “unresolved” up to this day.
Wondering what are the insurmountable challenges impeding the UN to end the impasse in the territory of Western Sahara, Mr. Kikwete asked the world to do the needful and put to rest the Saharawi question. (SPS)
