SPLM task force on Darfur says conflicts has grown "complex"


April 14, 2007 (KHARTOUM) — The Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) task force on Darfur has expressed concern about the growing insecurity in the region saying that the conflict has become more complex. Further, the former rebels expect peace process to be very complicated.

Chairperson of the Task Force and SPLM Special Envoy on Darfur, Reverend Clement Janda, said the resolution of the four year crisis in Darfur needs huge efforts because the conflict has become more complex. However, he added that the task force was “prepared to face the challenge”.

Rev. Janda, who held a meeting on Friday with the First Vice President didn’t elaborate on the SPLM strategy to reenergize the peace talks between Khartoum and rebel groups opposed to the Darfur Peace Agreement.

In a statement after the meeting with the President, Rev. Janda said they thanked the President for entrusting to them this “noble task”, and had discussed with him how they would get the process started.

Rev. Janda said that such visits would be “part and parcel” of the task force to Darfur.
He reiterated that in the light of his experience during the last round of the Abuja peace talks, he said that he had never received a more difficult assignment than this new role.

The delegation was headed by the Reverend Clement Janda, Chairperson of the Task Force and SPLM Special Envoy on Darfur. Rev. Janda was involved for five months in the Darfur peace talks held in Abuja, Nigeria, in 2006. The delegation also included two members of the Task Force, Priscilla Nyannyang Joseph and Achier Deng Akol.

Two of the members of the seven-member Task Force, Lt Gen. Abdelaziz Adam el Hilu and Maj. Gen. Yasir Saeed Arman, are currently in the United States. But efforts are being made to bring all the members of the Task Force together.

The initial objective of the SPLM is to hold a meeting for the holdout rebels in Juba in order to address their demands and to fix a common ground for the expected peace talks.
