African Union - United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UN-Mandatiert)
Time for the AU and UN to renew their vows in Darfur (24.07.2015)
The relationship between the United Nations (UN) and the African Union (AU) in Darfur has all the makings of a highly dysfunctional marriage, with one side throwing around its weight to show power and make decisions, while the other ends up being excluded from day-to-day affairs.
Amid worsening violence in Sudan's Darfur region, a frustrated International Criminal Court prosecutor pleaded on Monday for the United Nations Security Council to take action to ensure justice "for the long-suffering victims of atrocity crimes."
Expressing deep concern at the “serious deterioration” in the security situation in Darfur, the Security Council has decided today to extend for one year, until 30 June 2016, the mandate of the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in the Western region of Sudan.
The African Union Peace and Security Council (AUPSC) on Wednesday has extended for an additional period of 12 months the mandate of the African Union United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) and called for the resumption of talks on an exit strategy.
The United Nations on Tuesday denied a media report that Sudanese troops held South African peacekeepers in Darfur hostage so Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir could leave South Africa and avoid being arrested to face genocide charges.
UN officials and diplomats say the Sudanese government has become increasingly confrontational toward the United Nations and the West over the joint UN-African Union mission to Darfur (UNAMID), which Khartoum wants shut.
Sudan government accused the United Nations chief of misleading the Security Council by speaking about a surge of violence between the government forces and rebels in Darfur, saying the region is only witnessing tribal fighting.
