Sudan’s opposition powers have argued the European Union (EU) Parliament held in Strasbourg to pursue peace process and the democratic reforms in the country, pointing out that the government of the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) is involving in the conflicts in Central African Republic, South Sudan, Libya and its links with the terrorist group of the Islamic State and constituting instability factor in the region.
Sudan’s opposition delegation included the leader of the National Umma Party (NUP) Sadiq al-Mahdi, and the chairman of the rebel Sudanese Revolutionary Front (SRF) Malik Agar
Sudan’s opposition figures briefed the EU parliament on the humanitarian and human rights situations in Sudan.
Mahdi and Agar told EU that the national dialogue initiative is seriously prepared and was used by the ruling party to buy time before to organize the general elections.
"We want the EU parliament to support Sudanese people who have suffered for 26 years and to back our initiative for comprehensive and just peace and democratization. We hope to get a response to this appeal and the EU parliament issue a strong resolution in support of the people of Sudan in their search for (peace and democracy)," Al-Mahdi said
Agar pointed to the need to protect civilians through stopping war and guaranteeing humanitarian access to the needy in the war affected areas. Also, he underscored the need to create a conducive environment and guarantee basic freedoms before the national dialogue.
"Sudan’s peace process and national dialogue will need a new, clear mandate for the mediation. The new mandate will need to include specific goals, a timeframe for moving the process forward in a meaningful manner and preventing the Government’s attempts to delay the process, and benchmarks for a truly comprehensive national dialogue process," he further said.
Agar called for "smart sanctions" on the Sudanese government and to stipulate some conditions related to the humanitarian access, peace and democratic reforms before increasing engagement with Sudan, providing debt relief, and funding as it is pledged by the EU governments in the Khartoum Process on combating human trafficking , or training Sudanese military and police.
