Sudanese Refugees in Chad Demand Voice at Juba Peace Talks


Sudanese refugees in eastern Chad have reiterated their demand to participate in the ongoing peace talks in Juba. The head of the Sudan Revolutionary Front rebel alliance attributed their delay of participation to logistical and administrative issues.

On Friday, Sheikh Mohamed Dafallah of the Treguine refugee camp in eastern Chad told Radio Dabanga that the Sudanese refugees who have sought asylum in Chad since the war erupted in Darfur are not represented in the ongoing negotiations in Juba.

“Our exclusion from the peace talks means a denial of our rights to express our opinion on the issues on the table, and this won’t help in achieving a just peace in Darfur,” he said.

He emphasized that reaching a comprehensive peace requires the participation of all parties including the government, armed movements, and stakeholders among refugees and displaced people.
