British Foreign Secretary withdrew his earlier statement on Durfur
STATEMENT BY THE FOREIGN SECRETARY ON DARFR (16.03.05)


"We have now seen copies of the formal Africa Union (AU) report on attacks in Darfur in January. It is now clear that the initial AU reports of the aerial bombing of the village of Shangil Tobayl and the killing of over 1 civilians there have not been substantiated. However the AU has reported that an attack on Hamada by armed militias supported by GoS military vehicles resulted in the death of over 70 people. This is a matter for grave concern.

We have made it clear to all sides that we expect them to keep to their commitments to stop fighting and abide by the cease-fire agreed in Ndjyamena and reaffirmed in the Abuja Protocols. The urgent priority now is to ensure an improvement in the security situation to facilitate humanitarian assistance and to create a conducive atmosphere for political talks".
