MAPUTO COUNCIL - The Way Forward for Africa

10-11 November 2000



With regard to Western Sahara, the Socialist International expresses its deep concern at the constant postponement of the referendum on self-determination and reaffirms its resolution adopted by the Council in Brussels in April 2000, calling on Morocco and Polisario to cooperate fully with the United Nations and its special envoy James Baker.

The SI calls on Morocco and Polisario to open a political dialogue beyond the eventual agreements that could be made in present negotiations. In this context, the SI remains supportive of all United Nations initiatives.
