Diplomatic sources told Moroccan news outlet Hespress. that the headquarters of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Western Sahara (MINURSO) is preparing to receive the special envoy in the coming days.
Kohler, according to the source, did not specify the date of his visit.
The special envoy of the UN Secretary-General is expected to meet with Moroccan officials. The sources added that Kohler will also meet with Polisario representatives in the Tindouf camps, in southern Algeria.
Kohler will also conduct inspection visits of the UN Mission sites in Western Sahara to monitor the ceasefire agreement, violated by the Polisario in recent months.
The Polisario Front carried out destabilizing maneuvers on May 20 in Tifariti, east of Morocco’s defense wall to celebrate the “45th anniversary of its armed struggle.”
The latest violations acted in defiance of the recently adopted Resolution 2414 of the United Nations Security Council.
Both Morocco and the United Nations denounced Polisario’s actions, calling for an immediate withdrawal from the region.
The resolution also expressed full support of Kohler’s efforts to find a mutually acceptable solution to end the conflict over Western Sahara.
