Sudan: Arman - 'International Community Supports Comprehensive Solution'

London — Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North claims that the National Congress Party (NCP), refuses to implement the peace deal signed in Addis Ababa on 28 June 2011, Radio Dabanga has learned on Friday November 16.

Yasir Arman, Secretary-General of SPLM-N, disclosed in an interview with Radio Dabanga that former South African President Thamo Mbeki, chairman of the African Union High-Level Implementation Panel on Sudan (AUHIP), has been granted a new mandate earlier this month to review the issues of democracy, war as well as the situation in Darfur.

He added that the international community supports a comprehensive solution and not a partial one. The secretary-general stated he attended several meetings with officials in the United Kingdom, France and Canada during the past days and received several support messages.

'Peaceful dialogue'

Responding to a question from Radio Dabanga on the UN Security Council's resolution 2046, he pointed out that the SPLM-N is the only party negotiating with Khartoum. Arman added: "It is true that the resolution included the SPLM-N only, yet it can be expanded to other parties through the joint efforts of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) and peaceful dialogue to reach a comprehensive solution for the issues in Sudan."

He said: "if the movement wants a partial solution we would be drinking tea in Khartoum today", and pointed out that the SPLM-N has profound experience in working with the NCP.

Arman renewed the movement's adherence to SRF's project and working towards the fall of the current regime, "to create a union between Sudan and South Sudan; like European countries in the European Union," he added to Radio Dabanga.
