Ahmed Boukhari talks about how Front Polisario sees the negotiations with Morocco, and gives a picture of the atmosphere in the negotiation room in Manhasset in New York. 

Chairman of the Norwegian Support Committee for Western Sahara, Ronny Hansen, is interviewed from 17:50.

Hansen draws the parallels between the liberation struggles of East Timor and Western Sahara, explains the geopolitical game around the conflict, and looks at the reason why the territory was occupied in the first place. 

"The major powers in this context -the Americans, the French and the Spanish - are not prepared to put pressure on Morocco to honour their agreements and international law", Hansen says.
