On Wednesday, North Darfur tribal leaders agreed to pave the way for the restoration of security and stability in the state.

About 100 representatives of tribes living in Kutum, El Waha, Um Baru, Kornoi, and El Tina localities, gathered in Kutum town to discuss the extremely insecure situation in the region.

“They agreed to exert all their efforts to repair the social fabric, and stop all forms of attacks on civilians and their property,” Mohamed Ahmed Minawi Digeish, MP for the Um Baru, Karnoi, and El Tina constituencies told Radio Dabanga from Kutum.

“The tribal leaders also agreed to secure the Kutum-Um Baru- Karnoi-El Tina road andthe other roads in the North Darfur northern localities, and enable the farmers to cultivate their lands in peace and security.”

Adam Abdallah Saleh, MP for Kutum locality, informed Radio Dabanga that the tribal leaders agreed to form a number of committees that will visit the rural and urban areas in the localities, to promote peaceful coexistence.
