The UK is deeply concerned by reports of conflict in the Jebel Marra region of Darfur and the impact on the civilian population. We continue to press for a peaceful solution. Senior UK officials in Khartoum raised the issue with the Government of Sudan's chief negotiator for Darfur on 5 February 2019. We continue to urge all parties to end military action, to allow unfettered access for the United Nations - African Union Mission in Dafur (UNAMID) and to humanitarian actors, and to engage meaningfully in the peace process to secure a permanent ceasefire.
