Q - It seems the Quai d’Orsay has appointed a diplomat to follow the Darfur dossier. What is his exact mission and is his appointment connected with the Arab League initiative that originated in Qatar?

We appointed a special envoy to follow the Darfur crisis: Issa Maraut, an experienced diplomat who knows the area very well. He was appointed a few weeks ago, is posted in Sudan and speaks Arabic. He’s currently in Doha to follow the Qatar initiative to establish peace in Darfur.

France supports this initiative.
