Press releases

The European Union (EU) has issued a press release regarding its cooperation on migration with Sudan: "The EU commitment to enhance cooperation with African countries on migration is firmly anchored within International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law. The EU's assistance to Sudan is delivered at bilateral and regional levels through international agencies and NGOs, not through the Sudanese Government. No support has never been provided to the Rapid Support Forces." 
"Cooperation in Sudan focuses on projects to tackle the root causes of migration; these projects contribute to
improving livelihoods, stimulating youth employment, and supporting basic services for refugees, the displaced,
and host communities. At the regional level, EU cooperation is helping to build capacity to prevent trafficking and
smuggling of human beings, to enhance international protection of victims of criminal networks, to raise  wareness about the perils of irregular migration, and to increase opportunities for labour migration."
"The EU repeats its call on the Government of Sudan, the opposition and the armed movements to demonstrate
the leadership necessary to end the conflicts in Sudan, finalise the Cessation of Hostilities agreements and move
towards a process of dialogue as a basis for lasting peace in their country."
