Sudan – Attack against a UNAMID convoy (November 24, 2013)
France condemns the attack perpetrated on November 24 against a UNAMID (African Union- United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur) convoy which killed a Rwandan soldier.
We extend our condolences to the Rwandan authorities and to the victim’s family. France calls on the Sudanese government to swiftly investigate the recent attacks against UNAMID and to bring those responsible to justice.
France is concerned by the marked deterioration in the security situation in Darfur. Since the beginning of the year, intensified fighting has led to the displacement of more than 460,000 people. We reaffirm our support for UNAMID’s action as well as for the states contributing to the consolidation of peace in Darfur, and call on the parties to immediately resume the peace talks.
