IGAD Quartet alarmed by Sudan crisis

Addis Ababa, Jul 10 (Prensa Latina) The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Quartet Heads of State and Government in Eastern Africa on Monday expressed deep concern about the impact war in Sudan after reporting thousands of deaths and nearly three million displaced people.

The meeting chaired by Ethiopia, Djibouti, South Sudan, Kenya, Eritrea, Somalia and Uganda, as IGAD member states, agreed to solve conflicts between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Force (RSF).

During the meeting, it was learned that out of the number of displaced people, 2.2 million of them are internal and nearly 615,000 refugees managed to cross border to neighboring nations; hence the gratitude to those who opened their borders to provide protection to Sudanese displaced people.

The IGAD Quartet warned about the escalating conflict and repeated violations of various cease-fire agreements as well as the spread of violence outside Khartoum to other parts, particularly in Darfur and Kordofan, where it is taking on ethnic and religious dimensions, thus threatening to deepen polarization in the African country.

IGAD also strongly urged the parties to immediately end violence and reach an unconditional and indefinite ceasefire through a cessation of hostilities agreement backed by an effective compliance and monitoring mechanism.

In view of harsh humanitarian situation in Khartoum, it was decided to take concrete measures to facilitate immediate assistance to all Sudanese, focusing on vulnerable populations including women, children and disabled people.

IGAD Heads of State and Government strongly slammed serious and widespread human rights abuses, including sexual violence against girls and women.
