Sudan/Chad : Opening of the peace negotiations for Darfur
« We want security, we want justice »
FIDH makes public the report of a fact-finding mission
Khartoum, N'djamena, Cairo, Paris, London, 25 October 2007 - «We want security, we want justice »: this was the leitmotiv of all the Sudanese refugees met by the FIDH delegation while visiting the camps in Eastern Chad, in June 2007. The report of the mission (1) which is released today makes this claim a prerequisite to the conflict settlement.
United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1769 (2007) and 1778 (2007) authorizing the deployment of international forces in Darfur, Eastern Chad and North-East of the Central African Republic, should ensure, in the near future, the protection of civilians in the region. In this regard, the international community should give the necessary means for the effective deployment of the forces and the concerned authorities have to ensure them unhindered access.
