From the opening statement of Harold H. Saunders: "One of the principal issues that we have considered as we have talked about policy toward the Western Sahara over the past 18 months has been the question of how we can conduct our policy in this area so as to achieve three objectives: First, we need to maintain a productive working relationship with each of the countries and parties involved. Second, in doing so, we have needed to pursue and protect broad interests which apply across larger areas of the Middle East and Africa both. Third, we have pursued the specific objective, long-term objective, of a peaceful resolution of a problem that complicates the policies of the countries involved and complicates the pursuit of policy by the United States."
