UNHCR points out that these estimates will be maintained "until a full-fledged registration exercise is carried out."

In this way, UNHCR denies the biased figures conveyed in recent weeks by Algeria and the "polisario" and reaffirms the imperative of registration in accordance with its mandate and successive Security Council resolutions since 2011.

This reversal also confirms Morocco's consistent position calling for the census and registration of the populations of the Tindouf camps.
