"Daunting challenges" remain for Darfur peace process

Returned families arrive to their original village and greet their relatives

Huge challenges still exist to return peace and stability to Darfur.

That's one of the findings of the final report by the Special Representative of the Joint African Union-United Nations Hybrid operation in Darfur (UNAMID).

In a briefing to UN Security Council members, Ibrahim Gambari said international support is needed to insure the agreement signed in Doha by the Sudanese government and the Darfur rebel group the Liberation and Justice Movement, leads to a permanent peace deal.

"While the signing of the DDPD by the two parties represents an important step forward in the search for sustainable peace and stability in Darfur, it is my view that many daunting challenges remain. Among these are: one how to continue engagement of the hold-out armed movements JEM, SLA/Adbul Wahid and SLA/ Mionni Minawi and the Government of Sudan to agree to a cessation of hostilities."

Gambari also said an environment must be created so all Darfurians can be part of the peace process.
