‘Kuwait’s peace role is much appreciated’
NEW YORK, April 18, (KUNA): Kuwait’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Mansour Al-Otaibi has affirmed the current situations in Sudan are an internal affair that should not be interfered with.
Al-Otaibi made his remarks while addressing participants of UNSC special session on Darfur, noting that UN Secretary General’s recent report indicates that violations in Darfur have decreased significantly within the past four years. There is also a relative stability in the region’s security, in addition to the continued return of the internal refugees to their homeland, added the Kuwaiti diplomat.
He stressed the importance of securing safe, good, and optional return for the internally displaced persons, particularly in light of the current difficult circumstances in the Darfur, welcoming the allocation of USD 26.5 million as a fund to provide urgent aid for the needy ones.
He also stressed the importance of committing to UNSC resolution 2429/2018 on mandating the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) for keeping the peace, providing sustainable solutions to those concerned of confl ict, preventing relapse and enabling the Government of Sudan, civil society, and other actors to prepare for the eventual exit of UNAMID.
