International Relations and Cooperation Minister Maite Nkoane-Mashabane has called on the African Union Commission to boost its support for
Sudan as it prepares for January’s referendum on the future of the southern part of the country.
South Africa’s new special envoy to Sudan Charles Nqakula accompanied Nkoane-Mashabaneto
Sudan as did representatives of the eight countries overseeing post conflict reconstruction and development there.
They have decided to send a technical team to
Sudan to provide this body with a clear road map ahead of his meeting on the fringes of the African Union summit in January.
Meanwhile, the minister will marshal support for a solidarity conference by the African Union Commission and the African Peace and Security Council.
