Statement attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General – on the looting of a logistics base of the former United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur

The Secretary-General condemns the looting and reported violence occurring around the former United Nations logistics base in El Fasher since 24 December 2021 in a part of the former base for which custody was handed over to local Sudanese authorities on 21 December 2021. The safety of personnel from the former United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur, UNAMID, that remain at the base is of paramount concern at present. Security of this section of the base that has been overrun and looted was to be maintained by Sudanese authorities once it was handed over.
