The UN-AU Joint Special Representative for Darfur (JSR) Voices Deep Concern at the Security Situation in Chad
El Fasher --- The JSR, Rodolphe Adada is following with deep concern the deteriorating security situation in Chad and the impact it could have on the situation in Darfur.
He also notes with great regret the attacks that led to the crippling of humanitarian activities in region and the evacuation of most of UNHCR staff from the town of Guereda in eastern Chad and the series of armed attacks against aid workers.
Bearing in mind the strong historical and ethnic bonds between Sudan and Chad which share a long border, the JSR further notes that the African Continent in particular and the international community in general do not wish to see another bloody conflict in the region, and urges all parties to exercise self-restraint.
The JSR reiterates the call of the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon that all parties abide by their commitments under the different peace accords signed by them and to urgently resort to dialogue to reach a peaceful and negotiated settlement of this latest crisis.
