DARFUR: U.N. SPECIAL ENVOY JAN ELIASSON SPEAKS ON POLITICAL PROCESS
Eliasson, the U.N. Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Darfur, said at a Headquarters press conference yesterday that the foundation for a credible political solution in Darfur was now established, even as pressure mounted for the consolidation of international support for the political process before emerging problems became irreversible under deteriorating conditions.
Eliasson, speaking upon returning from a third visit to Sudan with Salim Ahmed Salim, his African Union counterpart, said a “snapshot” of Darfur would show three or four refugee camps whose tens of thousands of inhabitants had been there for three years.
It would also show the fear, dehumanization and fatigue that led to radicalization as arms began to flow in.
He said ravaged villages were marked by charred black squares on which houses had once stood, while an intact village, now occupied by a new tribe, was an indicator of the problems to come once the internally displaced began returning home.
