VOA: US Policy on Sudan, Darfur Under Microscope on Capitol Hill. U.S. policy toward Sudan and international efforts to devise a lasting and effective solution to the situation in Darfur are receiving attention from the Congress this week. Two House of Representatives committees and one Senate panel are looking at Sudan, as well as U.S. support for international peacekeeping. The hearings come a week after the fifth anniversary of resolutions passed on July 22, 2023 by the House and Senate declaring that genocide was taking place in Sudan.

Reuters: UN force in Chad, CAR deploying too slowly - envoy. The slow deployment of U.N. peacekeepers in Chad and the Central African Republic has limited their ability to deal with the poor security situation in both countries, a U.N. official said on Tuesday. The Central African Republic is one of Africa's most isolated countries, where a weak government is struggling to end several internal rebellions and is battling the spillover of instability from neighboring Sudan and Chad. "We urge both Chad and Sudan to work toward easing tensions and cooperating in implementing ... agreements aimed at normalizing relations between the two countries," he said.

Reuters: Sudan nomads say protest against oil ruling. Thousands of Arab nomads have protested against a ruling on the borders of a Sudan oil district they say robs them of pasture, in the first concrete sign of dissent over the judgment. The demonstrations by Misseriya tribesmen came less than a week after the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague defined the borders of the Abyei area in a judgment hailed as a resolution to a bitter territorial dispute. Misseriya leaders told Reuters on Tuesday up to 3,000 nomads packed the remote central Sudan town of el-Muglad on Monday, accusing the government of accepting the loss of their pastures in exchange for access to oil fields.

VOA: South Sudan Switches Strategy on Disputed Oil field. South Sudan has issued a new argument to support its claim on a major oil field given to the North as part of the Abyei ruling last week at The Hague. Disputing the North's possession of the oil field, the South says the prized land is still part of a separate southern region. South Sudan's ruling party, the Sudan Peoples' Liberation Movement, or SPLM, says that the Heglig oil field belongs to the southern Unity State region. The SPLM is threatening to appeal this continued border dispute at The Hague as a separate case.
