The dialogue is an important juncture in our relationship and we were invited by Sudan to commence it. Let me make it very clear that we need to continue to support Sudan. It is a source, host and transit country for migration. What is going on there affects the rest of Europe, and so we want to continue to help with the dire humanitarian situation there. Given that 2.5 million people are long-term displaced in Darfur alone, people need our support.
