SPLM urges UNSC to issue resolution to impose no-fly zone over S Kordofan

June 27, 2011 (Miraya FM)

The Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) in South Kordofan has called on the United Nations Security Council to impose a no-fly zone over the state and to discuss what the movement describes as 'genocide.'

In an exclusive interview with Radio Miraya on Sunday, Gammar Dalman, advisor to the SPLM Chairman accused the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) of carrying out more than 70 bombing raids in the state.

The state's governor, Ahmed Haroun, refuted the SPLM allegations. In a press statement, Harroun said the SPLM was trying to deflect attention and to violate the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.

He said the state government is committed to holding popular consultations. Haroun stressed that he is ready to accept the initiative of the National Consensus Alliance for a cease fire and provision of relief and aid to people displaced by the fighting.

Last Friday, humanitarian agencies in the state said they did not have access to tens of thousands of people displaced in the area.
