Sudan: UNAMID Condemns Assassination of Signatories of Doha Document for Peace in Darfur

The Joint Representative of the United Nations and African Union Mission for Darfur (UNAMID), Mohamed Ibn Chambas, has strongly condemned the assassination of Mohamed Bashar, leader of the peace agreement signatory faction of the Justice and Equality Movement and a number of his colleagues.

in a press statement issued at the UNAMID headquarters in Al Fasher, Ibn Chambas said that that the peace agreement signatory group has clearly expressed its preference to the peaceful solution for the dispute in Darfur when it has joined the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD) in last April in Doha.

He has also expressed his deep condolences to the families of the deceased persons, adding that the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur has obtained full support of the African Union, the United Nations and the international community in general as a road map for durable peace in Darfur.

Mr. Chambas has urged all sides involved in the fighting in Darfur, especially the non-signatory armed movements, to stop hostilities, respect the International Humanitarian Law and engage fully in the peaceful settlement of the conflict.
