Reuters has a story out today noting that Oxfam has formally appealed to the Government of Sudan for re-entry into Darfur, where conditions on the ground are still eroding.
At yesterday’s State Department press briefing, the following exchange took place:
QUESTION: Different subject. On Darfur, is there any update on the special envoy’s efforts there in terms of returning NGOs to Darfur?
MR. WOOD: I know that Scott Gration is working on that issue. Others are working on it as well. But I don’t have an update for you, Charlie, on whether or not we’ve been able to make any progress. I haven’t had a chance to speak with him. As soon as I can, I’ll try and get you an update on that.
