The United States underscores our strong support for the United Nations and the ongoing work of Special Representative of the Secretary General (SRSG) Volker Perthes in leading the UN Integrated Transition Assistance Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS).  We express our concern over the letter from the Sudanese Armed Forces calling for his resignation.  SRSG Perthes continues to have our confidence in implementing the UNITAMS mandate and in supporting the Sudanese people to achieve a peaceful and democratic future.
