SRSG Volker Perthes statement on the partially honored cessation of hostilities and intensified clashes this morning
The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Sudan and Head of the United Nations Integrated Transition Assistance Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS), Mr. Volker Perthes, is extremely disappointed that the Humanitarian cessation of hostilities that both the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) had committed to, was only partially honored yesterday. Clashes also intensified this morning.
Mr. Perthes continues to urge all parties to respect their international obligations, including to ensure the protection of all civilians.
He will remain engaged with the Sudanese, regional and international partners to work for a cessation of hostilities.
