Darfur Meeting Concludes with Call for UN, AU Role
Adjust font size:

A two-day international meeting on Darfur in the Libyan capital of Tripoli concluded on Monday with the final communique defining the United Nations and the African Union (AU) as the leading players on the issue.

The two organizations, alongside Sudan's neighboring countries, constitute the main channels of consultations and negotiations on a solution, according to the document.

It also unveiled a "road map" being prepared for the political solution to the issue.

The communique welcomed non-signatories of the Darfur Peace Agreement to meet in Arusha, Tanzania, from Aug. 3-5 in preparation for negotiations.

Chinese Special Representative for Darfur Liu Guijin expressed full support for the dominating role of the UN and the AU in finding a way out.

He gave a positive evaluation to the development since the first international meeting on Darfur was held in Tripoli in April, saying China is behind the UN, the AU and regional countries in their efforts to resolve the Darfur issue.

Liu appealed for resumption of talks between the opposition groups in Darfur and the Sudanese government, while urging world attention to reconstruction in the region and action to deliver humanitarian aid.

The meeting was attended by diplomats from the UN, the AU, the Arab League, the European Union and 18 countries including China. The Sudanese government and the opposition groups also sent their representatives to the meeting.

In May last year, the Sudanese government reached the Darfur Peace Agreement with the main faction of the Sudan Liberation Movement led by Mini Arkou Minawi. But other factions rejected the deal, claiming it had not met all their demands.
