"Decide that they want to solve the problem enough politically. Simply they are hanging around and they want to get a sign, some protocol to say to the international community that they are now going to solve the humanitarian crisis in Darfur. But from our side we do believe that the government is not genuinely serious to solve the problem in Darfur, and what they want that they just gain the time and to release the international pressure on the Sudanese side, so from our side, as I said, we came to Abuja to find a way to settle the conflict in Darfur."
