Aid Agencies Say Access To Sudan Remains Limited 6 Months After U.S. Lifted Sanctions

IRIN: Six months after U.S. sanctions lifted, promised aid access in Sudan remains limited
“With the lifting of U.S. sanctions last October, aid organizations hoped the Sudanese government would ease restrictions on aid operations and allow access to parts of the country long kept off limits. But six months after this major shift in strategy in dealing with President Omar al-Bashir, aid workers and rights advocates doubt the bureaucratic changes they’ve seen in Khartoum will translate into more people receiving humanitarian assistance over the long term…” (Chandler, 4/11).
