Western Sahara. It’s a place that many people have not heard about. Maybe, because it’s not yet considered a country. Western Sahara, or Aṣ-Ṣaḥrā’ al-Gharbīyah in Arabic has been on the UN list of non-self-governing territories along with Guam, American Samoa and the Cayman Islands since 1963.
Decolonized from Spain in 1965, it remains a disputed land between Morocco and the Polisario Front, working for Independence since 1979.
Siutated in North Africa, Western Sahara has Mauritania, Morocco and Algeria for neighbors. The majority of people originating from this mostly dry and arid land are called Sahrawis. The major religion is Islam.
The issue of sovereignty remains unresolved, to date.
