JEM says no to Doha Qatar peace talks - "war crimes being committed" in Darfur

Head of the Justice and Equality Movement (Jem) Khalil Ibrahim said that his group will no longer attend the peace talks hosted in Doha, Qatar, because President Omar el-Beshir’s decision to expel the NGOs condemns his people to death.

“Unfortunately, the government violated the good intention agreement… [when it] expelled 13 NGOs from Darfur. This is a real violation of one of the provisions [of the agreement],” Sulaiman Sandal, Jem’s chief of staff told RFI.

“We are calling on the international community so as to take responsibility that there is genocide going on, by depriving our people of food – there are war crimes being committed”, Sandal said from Darfur.
