To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of (a) United Nations' and local estimates of the numbers of people displaced in Darfur between January and April of this year; and (b) the humanitarian and security implications for Darfur.
We remain deeply concerned about the humanitarian and security situation in Darfur. The United Nations estimates that over 70,000 people have been displaced in Darfur this year through a combination of military campaigns and inter-tribal conflict. We continue to urge that UNAMID and all humanitarian personnel be granted full and unhindered access to those affected.
We welcome the recent signing of the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur between the Government of Sudan and the Liberation and Justice Movement. We continue to urge all other armed groups to agree an immediate ceasefire and to reach a common agreement based on the Doha Document.
