Also speaking to reporters after the Security Council voted on the resolution, Ruhakana Rugunda, the Ugandan ambassador to the United Nations, said, "The primary mandate of MINURSO was to go to Western Sahara and organize a referendum so that the people of Western Sahara can determine their destiny, either to integrate with Morocco or to be independent."

"This was to be done within a period of two years, it is now 19 years and has not been achieved," he said. "We would like to see expeditious implementation of the mandate of MINURSO so the people can determine their destiny."
