The two Parties disagreed in the suggestion of delivering humanitarian Aid to regions Under- control of Popular movement then USA submitted a suggestion and also it was refused by North sector… how do you explain that?? A: Unfortunately North sector in Popular Movement refused since 2012 and still continue in refusal . African Union ,United Nation and Arab League organized a triple initiative to deliver humanitarian Aid and another initiative to vaccinate children , but the Popular Movement resived Sudanese government acceptation with refusal again in 2015 and 2016. They insisted to deliver Humanitarian Aid from out-side directly to its regions without passing through any legal , healthy or security arrangements, even check contains of these airplanes or taxes procedures and we continue saying it is opposite with the national sovereignty and all international laws that organize process of delivering the humanitarian Aid to states. Then appeared the American suggestion, which agree with part of the government's worries concern the National Sovereignty and also fill needs of out- government control regions. Immediately , we agreed on American Initiative because we are keen to transcend the topic of Humanitarian Aid because it related to the weak innocent people who haven't any Sin to what happen between government and Popular Movement. But it seems that they targeted to misuse these topic as pressure cards to achieve political Agenda and we consider that there is no ethic causal for this behaviour while Develop of events in the area point that people in neighbour state are dying because famine. I renew my Call to North Sector in Popular movement to surpass topic to enable delivering Aid to Affected people as soon as possible to safe time before Autumn season and to avoid increase of suffer. Q: There are some Developments on many levels , political Improve in Sudan, Disagreements inside North Sector of Popular Movement and the recent visit of Sambo Ambeky n to Sudan… Do you expect resuming of negotiations around the two regions nearly?

Q: Some foreign agencies working in Sudan , but they move against its stability via disfiguring Sudan's image … recent political developments improved situations for Sudan' side …. How do you deal with this matter? A: Sudan have laws , legislations , country- agreement to organize activities of foreign organizations ,in addition to Principals of Humanitarian Aid . We in HAC review and follow up work of these organizations , if any defect happen , the treatment will be according to laws and system of Sudan. We have full coordination with UN and all foreign organizations in Sudan through common delegations to define needs and priorities , as we are very keen to cooperate to help Sudan and Sudanese.
