Sudanese Government reluctance to negotiate hindering peace process

10 June 2015

The greatest challenge of the peace process in Sudan is the reluctance of the government to engage in negotiations with armed movements.

That’s according to Abiodun Oluremi Bashua, the Deputy Joint Special Representative for the African Union-UN Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID).

He says the government believes it is in a position to win the war militarily, but the African Union and the UN believe only a political process can bring an end to more than a decade of conflict.

Reem Abaza caught up with Mr Bashua prior to him presenting his latest report on UNAMID to the UN Security Council.
