Statement on the Extension of the mandate of the UN-African Union Mission in Darfur

The Darfur Relief and Documentation Centre (DRDC) commends the United Nations Security Council for its unanimous decision renewing the mandate of the United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) until 30 June 2018. By adopting Resolution 2363(2017) of 29 June 2017, the Security Council renewed its concern about the deteriorating security and humanitarian conditions in Darfur and the need to keep the situation under its scrutiny as it represents a threat to regional and international peace and security. DRDC fully agrees with the Council’s conclusion that: “… the overall security situation in Darfur remains precarious due to activities of militia groups, the incorporation of some militias into auxiliary units of the Government of Sudan forces, which have become key actors in the conflict between the Government of Sudan and the armed movements and in inter-communal conflict and further exacerbate insecurity and threats against civilians in Darfur.
