3. SOUNDBITE (English) James Kariuki, Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, United Kingdom:
“We just had a council meeting on Darfur, and I'm speaking in my national capacity. We discussed the latest situation at the request of the UK, the USA, France, Ireland, Norway and Albania. Violence is increasing in Darfur and this is the second time in five months that the Kreinik town has seen a deadly wave of attacks. The violence is preventing humanitarian aid getting to those in need. OCHA has had to suspend food distribution in West Darfur, affecting at least 62,000 displaced people. We take note of the response of the Sudanese authorities, but without serious investment in local peacebuilding and justice, a unified security presence, disarmament and land reform, we worry the gains made by years of investing in peace could be quickly reversed. Thank you.”
