The UN has not observed any incursion led by the Polisario armed elements in the buffer zones, said on Monday Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General answering a question on the current crisis in Morocco.

«With respect to that situation, our colleagues in MINURSO [United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara] have not observed any movement of military elements in the northeast territory», said Dujarric during a daily press briefing held yesterday, adding that the «MINURSO continues to monitor the situation closely».

In March 2016, former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon had agreed to meet with members of the Polisario in Bir Lahlou, triggering Morocco.

The UN's permanent representative to the UN, Omar Hilale, is likely to react to Stéphane Dujarric's statement in the coming hours.
