Qatar affirms support for Sudan's stability and sovereignty
Qatar has affirmed its unwavering support for the unity, stability, and sovereignty of Sudan and the right of the Sudanese people to realize their just aspirations and demands for freedom, peace, and justice.
His Excellency Sheikh Jassim bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, from the International Organizations Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), said Qatar's policy and efforts have always focused on supporting Sudan in achieving peace and stability.
The signing of the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur is a result of these efforts, which entails the implementation of community and development programs to consolidate the peace process, Sheikh Jassim said during an interactive dialogue with the Independent Expert on Sudan in Geneva.

He said Qatar also welcomed the interactive dialogue and the recent developments in Sudan with the signing of the constitutional document that led to the formation of the sovereign council and the establishment of a civilian government for the benefit of the people of Sudan.
Qatar attaches special importance to the promotion and protection of human rights in Sudan, and the need for the Human Rights Council and the Office of the High Commissioner to play an important role by providing the necessary technical assistance and building the capacity of Sudanese governmental and non-governmental institutions, he said.
Given the challenges facing Sudan at this delicate stage of its history, Qatar renews its keenness on the promotion and protection of human rights out of its firm conviction that the Sudanese people deserve to achieve their aspirations for stability, development and decent living, HE Sheikh Jassim said.
"We affirm that the State of Qatar will spare no effort in continuing to play its positive role in helping our brothers in Sudan to achieve this legitimate goal," he said.
Qatar had earlier this month congratulated Sudan on the formation of its new government, terming this as an important step toward achieving the aspirations of the brotherly Sudanese people for freedom, peace, and justice and building the state of institutions and law.
