Speaking at the conclusion of the extraordinary meeting of the Arab League Council at the level of permanent delegates, Al Buainain said the Qatari efforts toward the Darfur region have been continuing, underscoring that the current visit by the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs H E Ahmed bin Abdullah Al Mahmoud and AU/UN joint mediator on Darfur Djibril Bassole is in line with these endeavours and aims to consult and accelerate reconciliation between the Darfurian to bring about peace in the region. He lauded the support extended by all Arab countries to Qatar's efforts that aim to maintain the unity and stability of Sudan, while pointing to the importance of providing all sorts of support to Sudan at this important stage of its history, especially as the referendum of self-determination for the South is approaching. Al Buainain said the Arab position on Sudan which had been clear since the Arab summit in the city of Sirt, Libya, and confirmed the need to support Sudan politically and financially in order to maintain its territorial integrity and sovereignty. The Arab League Council had lauded the tireless efforts made by Qatar to reach a final and comprehensive peace agreement to end the Darfur conflict through the ongoing peace negotiations in Doha, and backed the framework announced last November by the joint mediation that fixed the duration during which a final peace agreement should be reached.
