The UK ambassador to Sudan, Giles Lever, on Tuesday, expressed worries over the situation of displaced people in the state of Darfur.
Despite the signing of the Juba Peace Agreement by the different armed movements in Darfur, the security situation has deteriorated, and more people from Darfur have found themselves fleeing to Chad.
In a video statement, Lever said that he was “shocked” from the lack of basic services in the camp, and what he had heard from the displaced persons about the lack of security in the camp and their inability to return to their villages and their crops.
The ambassador pleaded the political forces to come to an agreement that would guarantee the return of stability of the region.
The UK ambassador promised his country’s continued support to Sudan, revealing 250 million in pound sterling were sent to the country after the fall of the Bashir regime.
