Annan urges Darfur rebels to intensify talks

"The situation in Darfur continues to be dire," Mr Annan warned through a statement issued by his spokesman today addressing the parties, especially the SLM/A and the JEM.

Pointing out that millions of civilians remain dependent for their survival on humanitarian assistance which is threatened by the continuing violence, he added: "The clear solution is for the parties to seize this historic opportunity to achieve peace and begin the task of recovery and reconstruction."

The Secretary-General pledged that the UN "stands ready to assist" in this endeavour. Full report UN News Centre May 1 2006.
