Russia stressed on Friday that Security Council resolution 2602 on Western Sahara undermines the transparency of the work of the Security Council and unlikely to contribute to the efforts of the Secretary-General and his Personal Envoy to resume the process of direct negotiation in order to achieve a mutually acceptable solution providing for the self-determination of the people of Western Sahara in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations.

During his intervention at the Security Council session on Western Sahara, Russia’s Deputy Representative to the United Nations, Dmitry Polyanskiy, pointed out the negotiations that preceded the adoption of the resolution did not take into account the comments and proposals of Russia, which were of a conciliatory nature, and a number of constructive proposals from other members of the Council were also ignored.

The Russian diplomat highlighted that the resolution does not reflect the situation on the ground that developed in Western Sahara after the escalation of the military confrontation that took place in November of last year.
