The Government fully support the efforts of the United Nations Acting Humanitarian Co-ordinator in calling on both the Government of Sudan and the SPLM-N to stop the fighting in Southern Kordofan and other conflict affected areas of Sudan and to find a political and negotiated solution to the conflict. We also support his calls for unconstrained humanitarian access to affected civilians. The Government are encouraging the humanitarian co-ordinator to also find ways to build trust and understanding between all stakeholders in order to strengthen dialogue with the Government of Sudan to address the humanitarian needs of civilians in conflict affected areas.
