Sudan / Daily press briefing by the office of the spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General

 

KARTHUM, Sudan, August 15, 2008/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Ashraf Qazi, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Sudan, briefed the press in Khartoum today, saying that recent months have been challenging ones, in which the Comprehensive Peace Agreement process has been put to the test by the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) attack on Omdurman and the violent clashes in Abyei.

 

Qazi said that, whether in the North, the South or in Darfur, peace in Sudan is indivisible and interdependent, and that the context for that process to be effective is embodied in the provisions of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.  He expressed his hope that the Abyei road map will serve as a catalyst for progress on other outstanding issues in the framework of that Agreement.  And we have his opening remarks to that press conference upstairs.
