Sudan / Malakal / A potential threat to the 2005 peace deal between North and South

 

WASHINGTON, February 28, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — US Department of State Daily Press Briefings

 

Robert Wood

Acting Department Spokesman

Taken questions

 

QUESTION: Yeah, the fighting in the southern Sudanese town of Malakal, do you see that as a potential threat to the 2005 peace deal between North and South? And what would you do to stabilize things?

MR. WOOD: Well, we certainly hope it’s not a threat to that agreement. We’re concerned, of course, by any type of violence that’s going on in that region. Sudan is – the Sudanese people have suffered for such a long time, and we’re going to work with our partners in the international community to try to do what we can to make sure that this type of violence doesn’t continue and that we can, at some point, you know, bring peace and security to the people of Sudan, you know, and specifically Darfur, which is another great concern to all of us in the international community.
