Algerian L’amamra Nominates to a Position of UN SG Envoy

Sudan Events – Talal Mudathir

French website “Africa Intelligence”, which specializes in African affairs, revealed today, Wednesday, that former Algerian Foreign Minister Ramdan L’amamra is the most likely to assume the position of Special Envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to Sudan, succeeding the German Volker Perthes, who resigned last September.

The website, known for its closeness to French security circles, indicated that the name of the former Algerian Foreign Minister was mentioned months ago as part of a team of diplomats chosen by the African Union to assume the task of mediating in the Sudan crisis.

This Algerian diplomat served as a United Nations envoy to Liberia between 2003 and 2007, before being elected in 2008 as President of the African Union Peace and Security Council.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has not yet decided on the nominations regarding the choice between L’amamra and his former envoy to Afghanistan, Nicholas Fink Haysom, who is also nominated for the position.
