FVP Gai praises Sudan humanitarian support for South Sudanese refugees

According to the Sudanese mission in Geneva Taban made his remarks during a meeting held with African group on the sidelines of the 34th Human Rights Council Session i n Geneva.

Gai "pointed to the Sudanese government’s cooperation with the South Sudan to overcome the current (crisis) particularly in the field of humanitarian aid," said the statement.

He said that the White Nile border state is receiving many refugees from South Sudan, praising the assistance it provides to them.

He further "called on African governments to provide support to the Government of South Sudan to overcome the difficult humanitarian situation," said the statement.

Sudan already hosts nearly 330, 000 South Sudanese who have fled the civil war that erupted in their country in mid-December 2013. They joined nearly 500,000 who preferred not to return to the new nation after its secession from the north in 2011.

The UN refugee agency recently said tens of thousands of South Sudanese are expected to pour into Sudan in the months ahead.

South Sudan declared famine in parts of Unity State, saying 100, 000 people face starvation and another million are on the brink of famine.

      Bravo Mr. VP Taban Deng for your great remark! Indeed, those in displacement or camps are your people, and want them to be treated as well as humans. We don’t know what made those of Midit going mad, while their leader Riek Machar was there in Khartoum last year. As soon these rebels are cleaned out from their sanctuaries, then people will come back to home safely.

    Right. Taban Deng Gai is silent on the blocking of access to humanitarian assistance to Mayendit, shame!!!

      Taban Deng Gai is a man of peace. No blocking of humanitarian assistance to Mayendit. SPLA is clearing the area from bad guys (rebels), is that what you call blocking humanitarian assistance? You are speaking the language of rebels.
