KHARTOUM (Sudanow.info.sd) - The Head of Darfur Peace Follow-up Office has played down call by two Darfur armed movements for unification of the Qatari and AU mediatory efforts in one track, describing the demand as but an attempt to double cross the roadmap which was signed by the government but rejected by the same group of rebels.
Amin told the official Sudan News Agency Tuesday that the call by Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) of Jibril Ibrahim and Sudan Liberation Movement (SLM) faction of Minni Minnawe, is aimed at creating a new mandate away from the African Union High Implementation Panel (AUHLIP) led by the former South African President Thabo Mbeki, and the Qatari sponsored Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD).
These two tracks are based on completion of peace process according to the provisions of Doha peace accord, he said, explaining that the two said rebel movements refuse this stipulation.
On Monday, the Information Minister and government spokesman Dr. Ahmed Bilal Osman was quoted as welcoming the call saying that combining the Qatari and African Union mediation together would bring closer the viewpoints of the government and the armed rebel movements.
But Amin explained that the minster statement was meant to welcome any effort for coordination between Doha document and AUHIP mediation, such coordination is included in the roadmap, he added.
