Horst Köhler, Personal Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for the Western Sahara peace process has announced his resignation for personal reasons.
During his mandate, he has contributed to bringing a new dynamism to the Western Sahara process. The Western Sahara conflict has lasted for a long time, causing political friction in the region and acting as an impediment to regional cooperation, thus leading to suffering among the displaced people.
The UN Secretary-General will appoint his successor in a way that the momentum in the process will be sustained.
