Security Council Committee Concerning Sudan Convenes Meeting with Sudan, Regional States

At its fifth formal meeting on 13 November 2014, the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1591 (2005) concerning the Sudan met with representatives to the United Nations of the Sudan, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Libya, and South Sudan to discuss the implementation of the measures (arms embargo, travel ban and assets freeze) imposed by the Security Council in relation to Darfur.

The Chair of the Committee encouraged the invited representatives to share the challenges faced in implementing the measures, with a view to identifying information gaps and capacity-building requirements.

In this context, members of the Committee underlined that the close cooperation of the Sudan and Member States, particularly those in the region, with the Committee and its Panel of Experts was essential towards the full and effective implementation of the sanctions regime.
