UNAMID urges Sudanese rebel groups to join peace process

Khartoum, Sudan (PANA) - The African Union-United Nations Joint Chief Mediator for Darfur, Dr. Mohamed Ibn Chambas, has strongly urged the Darfur non-signatory movements to explore ways to move the peace process forward.

He said, in a statement obtained by PANA here Tuesday, that the only way to end the conflict in Darfur is through a peaceful and negotiated settlement.

It said Mr. Chambas was addressing delegations of the Sudan Liberation Army/Mini Minawi (SLA/MM) and the Justice and Equality Movement/Gibril Ibrahim (JEM/Gibril) during the opening session of the All Inclusive Peace and Security in Darfur Technical Workshop, which commenced on 9 Dec. in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and  will run through 11 Dec.

The mediator said the workshop was an opportunity to come up with a clear road-map for engagement.

The workshop, co-organised by the AU-UN Joint Mediation Support Team and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), is designed to discuss issues related to international humanitarian law and human rights.
