Irish Foreign Minister Michael Martin reiterated his country's commitment to support UN efforts to promote a political solution in the Sahara.

Ireland reiterated its commitment to United Nations action aimed at resolving the Sahara conflict. Foreign Minister Michael Martin stated this position in response to a question raised by Sinn Fein MP Math Carthy in the Irish Parliament.

Michael Martin emphasized that Ireland strongly supports UN efforts, including the MINURSO mission (United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara) and the UN Secretary-General's Personal Envoy. He hoped that these efforts would lead to a just, lasting and mutually acceptable political solution.

The minister also referred to the United Nations Security Council resolution extending the mandate of MINURSO for one year. The extension is seen as a critical step towards maintaining stability in the region and continuing to work towards a peaceful solution. Martin called on all parties involved in the conflict and the international community to support the UN representative and fully cooperate with the MINURSO mission.

Michael Martin praised the continued efforts of the United Nations Secretary-General's Personal Envoy, who has made several visits and consultations in the region. These initiatives are essential for understanding the perspectives of various parties and encouraging constructive dialogue.

Ireland's stance on the Sahara conflict is not new. Ireland has long supported the efforts of the United Nations and encouraged the parties concerned to participate actively in the negotiations. The Minister recalled that Ireland has always advocated a diplomatic and peaceful approach to resolving this conflict.

In response to questions about the Polisario Front leader's visit to Ireland earlier this year, Michael Martin clarified that the visit was not of an official nature. He insisted that Ireland maintain a neutral and balanced position, supporting United Nations peace efforts without taking sides.
