State Minister for Humanitarian Affairs,
Dr. Abdalbagi Al Jilani , reported that the government has reopened the
Sobat River route for delivering food aid as there are serious problems
in the areas of Upper Nile, Warap, Bahr Al Ghazal and West Equatoria due
to delay of rains and tribal conflicts in the areas of Bor and Al Nasir.
In statement to Sudan Vision, Dr. Jilani
stated that the government has addressed donors for securing $44 million
for relief operations in the coming three months.
He said that the UN has dismissed rumours
to the effect that the World Food Programme has suspended its activities
in South Sudan.
