UN: Cooperation With Sudanese Government Important

KHARTOUM, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) — The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) Thursday affirmed importance of cooperation with the Sudanese government to find lasting solutions to the conditions of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and refugees in the country, namely in Darfur, eastern Sudan and southern Sudan.

The UN’s probably right. Too bad the Sudanese government couldn’t care less about refugees.

Obama Pushes Against Sudan Envoy Story

The White House is pushing back against a profile in the Washington Post of the Obama Administration’s Special Envoy for Sudan, Air Force Major General Scott Gration

Why would that be?

The story states that Gration wants the US to normalize relations with the Sudan, “the only country in the world led by a president indicted for war crimes,” a reference to President Omar Hassan al-Bashir.

“We would not take a step like that absent significant changes in conditions on the ground,” says a senior administration official.

No kidding. Did you hear that the violence in Darfur is going down but in south Sudan it’s going up? I imagine the mainstream media would rather tell you about Roman Polanski.
