People without a Country Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic
partially recognized de facto Sovereign state
Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic Following the Spanish evacuation, consequence of the Moroccan Green March, Spain, Morocco, and Mauritania signed the Madrid Accords on November 14, 1975, six days before Franco passed away, leading to both Morocco and Mauritania moving in to annex the territory of Western Sahara.
On 26 February 1976, Spain informed the United Nations (UN) that as of that date it had terminated its presence in Western Sahara and relinquished its responsibilities, leaving no Administering Power.
Neither Morocco nor Mauritania gained international recognition, and war ensued with the independence-seeking Polisario Front.
The UN considers the Polisario Front to be the legitimate representative of the Sahrawi people, and maintains that the people of Western Sahara have a right to "self-determination and independence".
