April 8, 2014 (PARIS) - A Darfur rebel leader called on the French government to support a comprehensive process to settle the different armed conflicts and to bring democratic change in Sudan.

Minni Minnawi, leader of a Sudan Liberation Movement faction made his call in a meeting with director of African affairs at the French foreign ministry on Tuesday, said a statement released by the rebel group.

Minnawi told the French official "they do not support the approach of partial solutions adopted by the regime and supported by some countries and international and regional organisations despite the manifest obvious of this policy," says the statement.

The rebel group claimed that the French official expressed France’s understanding and reaffirmed its support for a comprehensive approach to end the ongoing conflicts in Sudan.

Minnawi has denied on Monday that he had met with the Chadian President Idriss Deby in Paris and distanced himself from the meeting the latter held with the leader of the Justice and Equality Movement in last Saturday .

He explained that his visit to France comes as part of an European tour organised by his movement to brief European officials on the positions of his group and to meet SLM-MM chapters and the Sudanese communities in the continent.
