Wikipedia says the Western Sahara War was the armed conflict which saw the Sahrawi rebel national liberation movement Polisario Front battling Spain, Morocco and Mauritania for the decolonization and independence of the former Spanish colony of Western Sahara from 1973 to 1991. The war resulted in the Spanish retreat in 1976, the Mauritanian retreat in 1979 and a cease fire agreement with Morocco. The bigger part of the territory is under Moroccan control. The status of the Western Sahara remains unresolved, creating a permanent state of feud among Maghreb nations. We want to know what you think, so please take the survey.
Although there is a substantial human component to this dramatic conflict, in our analysis we think equally dramatic is the fact that North Africa’s economic, social and political progress is being hampered by this old conflict. Not only people are suffering, but the Maghreb Union is held hostage by this crisis and security in the region remains challenged by this feud.
