United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur (El Fasher)
Sudan: German Ambassador Visits South
26 January 2010
The German Ambassador to Sudan, Mr. Rainner Eberle, yesterday paid a visit to UNAMID's regional headquarters in Nyala, South Darfur.
The diplomat's mission was to gain a better picture of the situation in the region, as the country prepares for national elections scheduled for April 2010.
Mr. Eberle was briefed by the Mission's regional Head of Office on the overall security and humanitarian situation, as well as the state government's efforts to create an environment conducive for the voluntary return of IDPs.
The Ambassador later met with team leaders from UNAMID's substantive sections, to discuss the state's current political development, the Doha negotiations, tribal reconciliations, and issues relating to human rights and the rule of law.
