Sweden Wants to Increase Aid to Sudan

Development Aid Minister Gunilla Carlsson says Sweden is prepared to increase assistance to Sudan.

Speaking in Oslo Tuesday at a donors meeting held by the United Nations and the World Bank, Carlsson said peaceful and lasting development in Sudan requires the full implementation of the peace agreement between the northern and southern parts of the country. But she says the Khartoum government must do its utmost to stop the escalation of violence and crime in Darfur.

Sweden has provided more than 160 million US dollars in aid to Sudan since the signing of the peace agreement in 2005. The Development Aid Minister says Swedish assistance will focus mainly on the growth of democracy and the participation of women.
