The UK Government continues to urge the Government of Sudan and the Sudan People's Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) to immediately resume negotiations to agree a permanent ceasefire and a humanitarian agreement. During the UK-Sudan Strategic Dialogue (16 October), we welcomed the Sudanese Government's extension of their unilateral cessation of hostilities and urged them to extend it further. We have welcomed their acceptance of the US proposal to provide humanitarian aid to the Two Areas (South Kordofan, where the Nuba Mountains are located, and Blue Nile). We continue to urge the SPLM-N to immediately agree to the US proposal.
