UNITAMS: We are receiving more requests for meetings
UNITAMS said that it was still receiving more requests from Sudanese parties to hold their announced meetings within the framework of the political process consultations it is conducting on the current crisis.
The United Nations Transitional Support Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS) confirmed that it is doing its best to respond to requests “it continues to receive from many representatives of Sudanese stakeholders to hold meetings within the framework of consultations for a political process for Sudan.”
Emphasizing its keenness to engage more Sudanese stakeholders, UNITAMS said the operation launched by it aims to support a Sudanese-owned solution to overcoming the political deadlock left by the October 25th coup.
However, Volker Perthes, head of UNITAMS, continued to stress that the mission does not present ready-made solutions, nor a specific vision for the solution.
Rather, he said, it will listen to all stakeholders to come up with a vision that ends the stifling political crisis.
He made it clear that the United Nations had no prior solution to offer in this Sudanese-owned operation.
On its Twitter page, UNITAMS said today, Friday, that more than 20 groups – representing various civil society organizations, women’s rights organizations, political parties, academics, and national experts – participated in the consultation sessions facilitated by UNITAMS in order to facilitate political process in Sudan.
She added that the UN-facilitated consultation process seeks to hear “what Sudanese stakeholders believe is critical to overcoming the current political impasse.”
