The Minister for Africa [Andrew Mitchell] met the All-Party Parliamentary Group on 26 April to discuss the report's recommendations. The UK has consistently urged the Sudanese authorities to deliver on their obligation to protect civilians and to ensure implementation of the Juba Peace Agreement, to help address the violence and instability in Darfur. The recent violent conflict across Sudan is very concerning. The UK's humanitarian priority is to secure operational security guarantees and humanitarian access. When conditions allow, the UK will lead international efforts to rebuild the Sudanese economy and mitigate the humanitarian impact across the country, including in Darfur.
