The Sudan Comprehensive Peace Agreement:
A Framework for Peace and Reconciliation for All Sudanese
Charles R. Snyder, Senior Representative on Sudan, U.S. Department of State
6:15 Registration & cash bar, 6:45 p.m. Dinner,
7:15 p.m. Program, followed by Question & Answer period
A peaceful Sudan is important to the United States to promote regional stability in the Horn of Africa. The signing of the historic Comprehensive Peace Agreement on January 9, 2005, ended more than two decades of human suffering and Africa’s longest-running Civil war. It was the first tangible evidence that Sudan had begun to turn in the direction of peace and reconciliation when it inaugurated on July 9 its new Presidency of the Government of National Unity.
The “New Sudan” subsequently appears to have passed a critical test when the parties remained committed to the Government of National Unity and the Comprehensive Peace Agreement following the tragic death of First Vice President John Garang on July 30.
Mr. Snyder will discuss how Sudan and the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Darfur remain one of the United States’ most important foreign policy priorities. He will discuss how the U.S. is committed to ending the violence in Darfur, holding accountable those responsible for atrocities, and delivering humanitarian relief.
He also will discuss how the Comprehensive Peace Agreement holds the best prospect for remedying the grievances and ending the marginalization of other groups and regions of this geographically immense and culturally, racially, and religiously diverse country.
