The presentation by Horst Kohler, personal representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Western Sahara, to the UN Security Council on his recent visit to the region was preceded in the background by Moroccan maneuvers aimed at anticipating and limiting the presentation to a simple fact.
This is revealed in a letter sent by the Permanent Representative of Morocco to the UN to the fifteen members of the UN Security Council on August 6, two days before the presentation of Horst Kohler.
“The Security Council will hold its third six-month consultation on the issue of the Moroccan Sahara on 8 August 2018. The meeting was requested by the Secretary-General’s personal representative, Mr. Horst Kohler, the briefing will be only an objective report of the his visit to the region last June, “Omar Hilale (Morocco’s ambassador to the UN in New York) wrote, adding that ” Morocco would have preferred this third presentation and the personal representative would have been heard at a later stage. “
