A leader of a Sudanese rebel movement says his group is ready to pause a bloody war with Sudan's armed forces so that people affected by nearly two years of fighting can receive desperately needed humanitarian aid.
A Sudanese general linked to genocide in Darfur is leading an Arab League team to Syria to monitor the regime's compliance with a promise to end its violent crackdown on anti-government protesters.
The onus is on the government in Khartoum to prove that South Sudan is still helping SPLM-North, said Omer Ismail, a senior policy adviser at the anti-genocide Enough Project.
"We see two people who say, 'We are all for talks,' but they are coming from different perspectives that are not easily reconcilable," said Mr. Ismail. "In fact, they are miles away from each other."
