Umma Party warns of deteriorating situation in South Kordofan and Blue Nile

The Sudanese opposition Umma Party has warned of a deteriorating humanitarian situation in South Kordofan and Blue Nile states.

An Umma Party spokesman told Radio Tamazuj the situation in South Kordofan is still dire, since war broke out in the area last June.

He said the party has been trying to appeal to the government to allow aid into the affected areas.

The spokesman said the party appreciates and supports the trilateral initiative proposed by the UN, African Union and Arab League to open safe corridors to deliver aid to the affected.
