US Charge d’Affaires visits Abyei and offers US mediation to resolve the crisis

Media Monitoring Report, 4 April 2008

The US Charge d’Affaires in Khartoum, Mr. Alberto Fernandez, paid a surprising visit to Abyei yesterday.

At a meeting with Edward Lino, the Charge d’Affaires offered US mediation to resolve the crisis between the two partners.

Mr. Fernandez said he met with Edward Lino after familiarizing himself with the situations and warned that the conflict could threaten the CPA.

The SRSG said UNMIS came to Sudan to assist the implementation of the CPA and capacity building in the North and South of Sudan. He said that UNMIS was Chapter Six Mission and as such, it did not intervene in the affairs of Sudan.

However, he explained that UNMIS was here to implement the Security Council’s Resolution which was supported by the UN and Government of the Sudan.
