The UN Security Council on Friday voted to restore the UN mission in Western Sahara but was divided over the steps demanded from Morocco to bring the peacekeeping force back to full operations.

A US-drafted resolution was backed by 10 countries in the 15-member council.

Venezuela and Uruguay voted against the measure, while Russia, Angola and New Zealand abstained.
