The SADR is a full member of the African Union and is recognised as the sovereign authority for the territory referred to as Western Sahara. Western Sahara is officially classed as a 'non-self governing territory' by the United Nations. The agreements conform to oil industry standards and follow accepted international legal principles and UN guidelines with respect to non-self governing territories.
Alan Booth, Chief Executive of EnCore said: "We are delighted to have signed these agreements with the SADR in the first licensing round in the area. EnCore recognises and supports the aspirations of the Saharawi people in their quest for self determination and we look forward to constructive engagement between the relevant parties to achieve an acceptable solution under the guidance of the UN."
