Outlining the mission’s key priorities for 2011, he said UNAMID will continue to work towards a more secure and stable environment, including the protection of the civilian population.

Martin Nesirky, the spokesman for the Secretary-General of the United Nations, has more:

“He urged the staff to continue to support the Darfur peace and political process and the search for a comprehensive political and inclusive settlement which addresses the root causes of the conflict in Darfur. And this should include supporting the process of voluntary return of internally displaced persons and refugees to their homes, so that they can start living a normal life, Mr. Gambari said. And he also emphasized that security remains a top concern.”
