WASHINGTON, Oct. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Embassy of the Republic of the Sudan - Washington DC rejects the baseless allegations and the false accusations recently distributed by Amnesty International and other sources that repeated the same propaganda against peace and stability in Darfur and Sudan.
The Embassy appreciates the clear and strong stand of UNAMID on the fabricated and unfounded report of Amnesty International on Sudan's using chemical weapons in Jebel Marra area. The UN/AU Joint Envoy for Darfur Mr. Martin Uhomoibhi affirms on October 9th 2016 in Khartoum that the deployed UNAMID troops amounting to 20 thousands all over the region of Darfur have not received any information about using chemical weapons in Jebel Marra or any place else.
During the latest period, the area of Jebel Marra has witnessed two visits from US, the first one was in August by the US special envoy for Sudan and South Sudan, and the second one was this month by the US Charge de Affairs and the Director of USAID in Khartoum.
The ultimate goal of such propaganda is to send wrong signals to the international community about the situation in Sudan. It is totally rejected to launch this campaign of misinformation and disinformation while the nation is celebrating the conclusion of the National Dialogue and witnessing positive progress in all fields of Sudan's regional and international relations. The People of Sudan and Darfur peace partners have also celebrated last month the conclusion of the implementation of Doha Peace Agreement that signed in Doha in 2011.
