“We do not understand the reason for the delay of the United Nations in appointing a personal envoy of the UN Secretary-General for Western Sahara,” Russian ambassador to Algeria, Igor Belyaev, said Saturday during his hosting in a debate on the Algerian channel Al-Nahar.

The Russian Ambassador indicated that there were some countries that impeded the appointment of a personal envoy of the UN Secretary-General for Western Sahara, adding that the United Nations does not attach much importance to the issue of Western Sahara.

The secretary-general’s last personal envoy for Western Sahara, Horst Koehler, resigned in May 2019, and since then the UN has failed to appoint a new UN envoy.
