‘The United States is particularly concerned about ... the secretary-general's report of some 42 instances in which UNAMID personnel and patrols have been denied freedom of movement and access. These quite directly and seriously contravene the terms of the Status of Forces Agreement the government of Sudan has committed to. It impedes UNAMID's ability to protect civilians and do its vital work. It is utterly unacceptable, as are the threats by the government of Sudan against UNAMID."
A U.S. anti-genocide group, the Enough Project, issued a report on Monday that urged the United States and other world powers to impose sanctions on key members of Sudan's government for refusing to end the violence in Darfur and south Sudan.
