Sudan Facilitates Humanitarian Aid in South Kordofan and Blue Nile

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

WASHINGTON, Jan. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The humanitarian crisis in South Kordofan and Blue Nile is an expected, logical and inevitable consequence of the war waged by the rebels of the South Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) and the non-signatory Darfuri rebel groups, against the Government.  It must be stressed that there is no higher priority for Sudan than ensuring the security and wellbeing of its citizens and protecting them from repeated attacks and indiscriminate killings carried out by the rebels.

While the situation has now progressed, Sudan's Humanitarian Aid Commission (HAC) will conduct further joint assessments with participating UN agencies, including World Health Organization (WHO), United Nation Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP) to explore ways to further ease the suffering of those that continue to be affected. The Government will be working closely with these organizations to generate agreeable rules of conduct in order to avoid the interference of some agencies in our sovereign affairs as was the case in the past.

Indeed the humane path is to confront the cause, which must be clear to all by now. The safe-havens of these rebels as well as their supporters are known. This should be the focal point of the efforts to permanently resolve the problem. It is worth recalling that the government has repeatedly extended an olive branch to the rebels which the latter have consistently rejected. Sudan also called on Southern Sudan to cease its support of the rebel groups and filed complaints at the Security Council.
