report UN Mission in Sudan

Opening Remarks

Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.

I have just returned from Eastern Sudan which, as you know, is the centre of one of the longest standing refugee situations in Africa. The East epitomizes this country's long history of hosting refugees. It is a tribute to both the Government of Sudan and the people of the Eastern region, who share land and natural resources with refugees who have nowhere else to go.

I visited Wad Sharifey, Shagarab and Kilo 26 refugee camps.
