The high committee, convened to address farmers’ and herders’ issues in the western rural areas of El Fasher and the neighbouring localities in North Darfur, has announced the state government's commitment to extend the prestige of the state, realise security, deter insecurity and bring the perpetrators to justice.

The committee has also expressed the Government’s readiness to deploy a joint force in the western areas of North Darfur state to deter the insecurity.

Adam Mohamed Hamed El Nahala, Minister of Agriculture and chairman of the high committee to address the farmers’ and herders’ issues, has highlighted the need to restore confidence and peaceful coexistence among the communities of the western area.

To achieve security and stability, he will be sending a proposal with the names of people who want to be added to the committee. In addition, a proposed joint force is to be raised by the committee.

The leaders of the western areas have called for the need to extend the prestige of the state, the rule of law, and to deter insecurity so that returnees to their villages can go about their normal lives and catch up with the agricultural season.

They have also stressed the need to deploy a joint force to be based either at Birka or Korma areas to maintain security and stability and deter insecurity.
