The Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union, Mr. Alpha Oumar Konare, regrets the decision of the Government of the Sudan to expel the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the United Nations to the Sudan, Mr. Jan Pronk.

 The Chairperson of the Commission pays tribute to Mr. Pronk for his commitment to human security and human rights, and for the tireless efforts he has deployed in the promotion of reconciliation and lasting peace in the Sudan.
The Chairperson of the Commission seizes this opportunity to urge all the Sudanese parties to refrain from any action that could jeopardize the peace process and, in particular, to put an immediate end to any military action which can only aggravate the security situation in Darfur. He appeals to the Sudanese parties to recommit themselves to the path of political dialogue as the only course to bring about lasting peace to Darfur and the Sudan at large.
