New York, June 10. The United Nations rejects Sudan’s call to deport Volker Perthes, who was declared persona non grata by the local authorities.

Stéphane Dujarric, spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General, announced this yesterday. According to him, the memo previously sent to the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs is against the principles of the international organization and cannot be taken seriously.

“Mr Perthes’ mandate has not changed at this time, and the position of the Secretary-General expressed in the Security Council last week remains the same,” Dujarric added.

Earlier, Secretary-General António Guterres repeatedly expressed “absolute confidence” in his envoy and head of the United Nations Interim Support Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS). However, on 8 June, the government of the East African Republic declared the German diplomat persona non grata and demanded his expulsion from the country.

In response, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, chairman of the Sudanese Interim Sovereign Council, has repeatedly asked to propose an alternative candidate for the post. According to Perthes, he bears full responsibility for fomenting armed conflict because of his narrow-minded leadership in the political process in the country.
