New York - Following the uproar caused by the United States’ decision to propose a Security Council draft resolution that would include the establishment of human rights monitoring mechanism in the Western Sahara, laymen, experts and analysts in Morocco and elsewhere, are asking many questions: will the US go forward with this proposal and formally present this draft resolution to the Security Council? What role will France, the main backer of Morocco on this issue, play to prevent this from happening? In the event the draft resolution is tabled in blue to the members of the Security Council, would France veto it?
