  • Description

    United Nations Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim continued his fact-finding tour on the future of the disputed Spanish Sahara when he arrived in Algiers on Monday (9 June) for talks with Algerian President Houari Boumedienne.

    Mr. Waldheim was greeted on his arrival at Algiers airport by senior Algerian officials and the U.N. Resident Representative in Algeria.

    During his four-hour visit, the Secretary-General conferred with officials of the Popular Front for the Liberation in Saguia El Hamra and ??? De Oro -- an organisation seeking independence for the Spanish Sahara -- in addition to his talks with President Boumedienne.

    Algeria has given support to the independence organisation...a move which has caused some difference of opinion with both Morocco and Mauritania who are claiming the Spanish Sahara as integral parts of their territories. At the moment the region is still under Spanish administration but discussions are under way on the territory's future allowing a United Nations resolutions in 1973 for decolonisation.

    Mr. Waldheim's fact-finding tour--which has already taken him to Madrid--relates to a U.N. decolonisation mission to the capitals of both ??? and Mauritania. Following his four hours of talks in Algiers, the secretary-General left to fly on to Nouakchott and Rabat for further discussions on the problem.
