U.S. envoy Gration says Sudan’s peace accord is in peril (Washington Post)
(Sudan) Time is running out to salvage a peace accord that ended Africa’s longest-running war, a key U.S. official said Wednesday, but he rejected suggestions that the Obama administration is not paying enough attention to the political turmoil in Sudan.
(Angola) The relations between Angola and the United States got considerably strengthened in the last 32 months. This was said on Tuesday in Luanda by the US ambassador, Dan Mozena.
WASHINGTON — Scott Gration, the US envoy to Sudan, warned Wednesday that there is no more time to waste in preparations for a January referendum planned for southern Sudan under a fragile peace pact. “I think it’s possible to get done everything we have to get done, but we can’t waste another minute. The time is now,” Gration told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “We are,” Gration said when the committee chairman, Senator John Kerry, asked him whether people were behind in preparations for a referendum that could lead to the secession of southern Sudan.
