The UN Security Council Friday voted unanimously to extend the mandate of the UN mission in Western Sahara, known as MINURSO, for another year.

"The Security Council decides to extend the mandate of MINURSO until April 30, 2011," the resolution said.

The 15-nation Council called on the parties "to adhere fully to" the military agreements reached with the UN mission with respect to the ceasefire in the region and "welcomes the parties' commitment to continue the process of holding small, informal talks in preparation for a fifth round of negotiations," the resolution said.

The Security Council "calls upon the parties to continue negotiations under the auspices of the (UN) secretary-general without preconditions and in good faith," the resolution said.

The resolution also "requests the secretary-general to keep the Security Council informed on a regular basis on the status and progress of these negotiations under his auspices and express its intention to meet to receive and discuss his report."
