The Foreign Ministry rejects the British draft resolution on the Sudan

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs today issued a press release confirming its unequivocal rejection of Britain’s draft resolution to the Human Rights Council to adopt a resolution on the current crisis in the Sudan that lacks objectivity and equity, as it equates the Sudanese armed forces with the rebel militia. The statement reads as follows:

Since late August, some Western circles have embarked on an organized political and media campaign that has been mocked by many NGOs for calling on the Human Rights Council to adopt a resolution on the current crisis in the Sudan, one of the most significant of which is that it lacks objectivity and equity because it equates the Sudanese Armed Forces with the rebel militia, and includes demanding the establishment of a so-called fact-finding commission.

This is taking place at a time when the Sudan is facing a war aimed at its unity, independence, security and stability as a Member State of the United Nations, launched by a militia that includes the preparation of a mercenary capacity from some States in the region and supported by well-known external services.

It also comes against the background of the rebel militia’s continued atrocities of ethnic cleansing and mass massacres in Darfur, the crimes of rape, murder, torture, displacement and detention of thousands of civilians by the militia, as well as systematic and widespread looting in the capital and the evacuation of residential areas, the use of human shields by civilians, the recruitment of children and the destruction of strategic, economic, service, cultural and educational institutions, which have so far not been met with the condemnation and endeavour to stop them from some of Western’s influential forces.

The draft resolution is also submitted while the Sudanese Armed Forces assume their constitutional, legal and moral responsibilities in defending the country and its people against similar foreign invasion, consistent with the Charter of the United Nations.

In the light of the foregoing, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs affirms that the protection and promotion of human rights in the Sudan has been and will remain a major objective and an advanced national priority in the national agenda. the Sudan hosts a full office of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Designated expert on the human rights situation in the Sudan and a human rights unit within UNITAMS, as well as the Group of Experts established by resolution 1591, which reports on the situation of human rights and international humanitarian law and, above all, the Sudan has established a national commission headed by the Attorney-General to investigate war crimes and violations and practices of the rebel and dissolved Rapid Support Forces (RSF), Therefore, no outsider could have increased the Sudan’s concern to protect and promote the human rights of its citizens and to cooperate with the relevant United Nations mechanisms.

The move led by Britain since last August and joined by some Western countries now faces collective rejection from all of Sudan’s geopolitical groups. Nevertheless, the United Kingdom has continued to bring the draft resolution to the attention of the Human Rights Council. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs therefore reiterates through this statement its unequivocal rejection of the draft resolution because it is the right aspect in its description of what is happening in the Sudan. s priorities at this stage, namely ending the insurgency first. s homes and civilian objects, including hospitals and places of worship s Declaration of Humanitarian Principles signed since May 11 and the silencing of rifles.
