Sudan: situation in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile State

  Lidia Joanna Geringer de Oedenberg (S&D). - Mr President, I wish to express my deep concern over the fighting in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile State which broke out on 1 September between the Sudanese armed forces and forces of the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement. These clashes have already proven to be extremely brutal. They have resulted in the loss of too many innocent lives and in the displacement of many people.

This spread of violence highlights an urgent need to supply humanitarian aid to those affected by the violence. It further highlights a need to establish, as soon as possible, negotiations between the fighting sides to ensure peace and stability. A political settlement is now absolutely vital for the country, therefore it must be insisted upon.

As a Member of this House, I appeal to both sides to cease hostilities by stopping all acts of violence. Moreover, I call on both sides and on the international community to take all appropriate measure to ensure that all Sudanese citizens are protected.
