Western Sahara


a disputed territory

The Western Sahara has been on the United Nations list of non-self-governing territories since 1963 after a Moroccan demand, when it was a Spanish colony. In 1966, the UN called on Spain directly for the first time to decolonize the territory. The Kingdom of Morocco and the Sahrawi national liberation movement Polisario Front, through the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) (exiled government in Tindouf, Algeria), dispute control of the territory.
