United Nations and African Union officials met in Khartoum on 15-18 February to continue discussions with the Sudanese government on Unamid's eventual exit from Darfur.

In a press statement from Unamid headquarters in El Fasher, North Darfur today, the Mission said that after three sessions of work, the tripartite team reached agreement on the terms of reference.

“It is expected that the joint working group established in the terms of reference will begin its task in early March with the view to preparing the exit strategy of Unamid from Darfur in stable and secure conditions.

“In the meantime, Unamid continues to implement its Chapter VII mandate as it focuses on its three strategic priorities, including protection of civilians, mediation between Government and non-signatory armed movements and support to local conflict mediation,” the statement concludes.
