Government Ready for the Negotiations Round Scheduled for February

Khartoum - The Sudanese government has renewed its full preparations for the round of negotiations scheduled for next month with the SPLM-N, as set by the AUHIP.

Humanitarian Aid Commissioner,  in charge of the humanitarian file in the said negotiations, Ahmed Mohamed Adam said that the delegation accepts these negotiations in a new phase based on the previous references of the road map and the draft of the previous agreement, expressing hope to that positive results will be achieved until comprehensive peace is achieved in Sudan, calling on the movement to complete the signing of the agreement after the government announced its approval of the US initiative as a third party to deliver aid to overcome all previous differences, stressing that the government will not be subjected to any pressure on the refusal to transfer humanitarian aid from outside the Sudan, stressing that Sudan has not and will not agree to the entry of direct assistance from outside the borders of the Sudan to the SPLM-N areas.
With regard to the voluntary return of IDPs and refugees, Adam said that after the success of arms collection operation, the country witnessed a massive voluntary return of displaced persons from the camps to their villages and refugees from outside Sudan's borders, where about 367,000 people returned in 2017 and there is a voluntary return in a number of states of  Darfur, stressing that this is a good indicator and that the stability in Darfur is proceeding at a steady pace and that citizens have reassured and their villages have become safe, stressing that the challenge before the state is to provide basic services to citizens there.
