Jan Egeland QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A separate appeal for $ 30 million was launched today in Geneva to meet the needs of refugees and host communities in Chad.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
Although we have do not have adequate access to all parts of Darfur we do fortunately have humanitarian personnel, including staff from my own office, in each of the three provincial capitals of Darfur.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
Based on numerous accounts, including reports from our own staff, the Janjaweed militia are primarily responsible for carrying out the attacks.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
Finally, I also come in recognition of the great work that has been undertaken by the NGOs and UN agencies that have been active for many years here, especially through the local staff and international staff here in Somaliland and in Somalia at large.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
Finally, I am encouraged to note that the Security Council issued a statement today expressing its concern about the massive humanitarian crisis in Darfur and calling on all parties to the conflict to protect civilians and reach a ceasefire.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
I consider this to be ethnic cleansing. I can't find any other word for it because these attacks primarily target the Fur, Zaghawa, Massaleit and certain other communities of black African origin.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
I had, in my capacity as a state secretary in the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the 1990s, many contacts with the Somaliland authorities.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
I have been working, as emergency relief coordinator, on an international scale, very hard to build a wider alliance of partners in assistance efforts.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
I think now Somalia is turning a corner and we can, with the new political development, build on momentum - really build a peaceful future.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
I think now, we in the international community are belatedly wanting to show our solidarity with the Somali peoples and also do our best to help them move to better times.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
I think the biggest challenge for Somalia has been the sense that it is a hopeless case of incomprehensible internal conflicts and there is nothing we can do.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
In a world full of competing emergencies and disasters, it really helps if there is an international locomotive that can help us bring attention - help us bring resources.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
It is as important and as inexpensive to save lives and stabilize in Congo as it is in Aceh and in Sri Lanka.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
It is only the Somalis themselves - and I don't hide that fact when I meet the political leaders here - they themselves have to stop their old practices of fighting each other every time they have a problem. They have to learn how to do peaceful conflict resolution.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
Many access roads are too dangerous for relief workers, preventing them from carrying out assessments or reaching people in need.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
No amount of humanitarian assistance can protect people from being attacked.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
Our assistance in Somalia has been remarkably effective and successful, and we have helped with very small resources - a large group of people and we can now do even more.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
Secondly, the Government of Sudan should commit to the disarmament and control of the Janjaweed militia and ensure that the targeting of civilians ceases immediately.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
Somaliland and Somalia at large have been receiving now hundreds of thousands of returnees that they had to accommodate with very small resources.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
Stopping these attacks against women, children, the displaced and refugees and ensuring their protection is our number one priority.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
The most important and urgent appeal we have to make is for an immediate cease-fire. Initial reports from the cease-fire talks being held in N'Djamena in Chad are not very encouraging.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
Then, we also need to have credible Somali institutions being established inside Somalia and local and regional peace agreements to be brokered.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
We are also assisting the refugees who have fled across the border to Chad. As many of them have been subject to attacks by militia crossing from Sudan, UNHCR is mounting a major logistical operation to establish camps and transfer refugees away from the border zone.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
We estimate that humanitarian agencies have access to about 350,000 vulnerable people in Darfur - only about one third of the estimated total population in need.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
We have also seen an organised campaign of forced depopulation of entire areas that has resulted in the displacement of hundreds and thousands of people, both within Darfur and to neighbouring Chad.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
We have in Somalia, as in Iraq and Afghanistan, been individually targeted by extremist groups, which nearly made us leave Somalia completely.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
We have received credible reports that show a clear and consistent pattern: entire villages are looted, burned down and sometimes bombed. Large numbers of civilians have been killed and scores of women and children have been abducted, raped and tortured.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
We need better coordination on the international side, just as they need better and more effective efforts on the Somali side. We have too many reconstruction and development assistance plans.
Quotation of Jan Egeland
We receive reports now on a daily basis from our own people on the ground in Darfur on widespread atrocities and grave violations of human rights against the civilian population.
