Clinton's envoy to Sudan discuss in London a plan to achieve peace
Sudan-USA, Politics, 1/14/2000
The US special envoy to Sudan, Harry Johnston, has held talks in Britain with British officials and Sudanese figures. The talks centered on the coming US move to establish peace in Sudan in the light of the new differences between the Sudanese rule and the opposition.
Sources who took part in the consultations told the London based al-Hayat daily that the US special envoy will conclude his visit to London today.
The sources stated that President Clinton's envoy will also visit Norway, which is an IGAD Partner, the group which supervises mediation between the Sudanese government and the southern Sudan rebellions.
Moreover, al-Hayat received information in that the US envoy is preparing his proposals on the US inclinations towards the peace process in Sudan.
Washington has strongly backed IGAD's initiative and refused the Egyptian-Libyan initiative to this end.
But the sources have not ruled out that a change could take place in the US position on recommendations made by Johnston to comprehend the fact that new changes have emerged on the Sudanese area in the recent months that made it difficult for both the Arab (Libyan- Egyptian) initiative and the African (IGAD) initiative as a convincing forum to settle the conflict.
