United Nations Security Council resolution 1394, adopted unanimously on 27 February 2002, after reaffirming all previous resolutions on Western Sahara and its commitment to achieve a lasting solution to the dispute, the Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) until 30 April 2002.[1]

The Security Council pledged to consider the Secretary-General Kofi Annan's "four options" for the future of the Western Sahara peace process described in his report, noting that both Morocco and Polisario Front had not fully co-operated with the United Nations in the settlement of their dispute.[2] The four options were:[3]

  1. The resumption of the implementation of the Settlement Plan without requiring agreements from both parties;
  2. The Secretary-General's Personal Envoy James A. Baker III would revise the framework agreement which would be presented to the parties on a non-negotiable basis;
  3. The Secretary-General's Personal Envoy James A. Baker III would determine if the parties would discuss a division of Western Sahara;
  4. The termination of the MINURSO operation.
