NEW YORK, February 9, 2010/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Daily Press Briefing by the Office of the Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General.

 

In his farewell speech yesterday in Khartoum, the outgoing Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Ashraf Qazi, said that this year will be crucial for Sudan.  He commended the country on recent developments in the electoral process and the implementation of the peace agreement between the north and south.  Qazi acknowledged that many challenges lay ahead, and he warned against a reversal of the recent positive trend. 

 

And Qazi, as we have already told you, is leaving Sudan for personal and family reasons, and he will be replaced by Haile Menkerios.
