U.N. Extends Ceasefire Monitoring Mandate Over Polisario and Morocco in W. Sahara
UNITED NATIONS, May 1 (UPI) -- The U.N. Security Council has voted unanimously to extend a cease-fire monitoring mandate between the Frente Polisario and Morocco.

The Security Council voted to extend the resolution until 2010 in a move to ensure security in the region and to encourage the continuation of a dialogue over the sovereignty of Western Sahara, the United Nations reported.

According to a release the Security Council resolution called on the Frente Polisario and Morocco "to continue to show political will and work in an atmosphere propitious for dialogue in order to enter into a more intensive and substantive phase of negotiations."

A cease-fire between the Frente Polisario and Morocco has been monitored by the United Nations since it went into effect in 1991. The Security Council has called on all parties to organize a referendum on self-determination for the region.
