Guatemala and Costa Rica back the resolutions adopted by the General Assembly and the Security Council on Western Sahara and advocate a just and acceptable solution to the dispute

New York, October 04, 2017 (SPS) - The nations of Guatemala and Costa Rica have expressed this Monday through our permanent ambassadors to the United Nations their support for the resolutions that have been adopted by the General Assembly and the Security Council on the Saharawi issue.

Guatemala reiterates its "support for the efforts of the Secretary-General and his Personal Envoy" in their quest for a just, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution to the Saharawi-Moroccan conflict.

For Guatemala the solution of this question is necessary not only for the people of Western Sahara, but also for the stability, security and integration of the Maghreb region.

For its part, Costa Rica "advocates a durable, democratic, just and acceptable political solution to all parties to the conflict in Western Sahara. This solution must be consistent with the principles and provisions of international law and human rights, which have governed the process of decolonization of this organization. " SPS
