The State of Qatar expressed strong condemnation and denunciation of the assassination of Mohamed Beshar, the leader of Sudan's Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) which signed a peace agreement with the Sudanese Government in Doha last April, along with his second man and a number of the movement's leaders which took place earlier Monday morning near the Sudanese-Chadian border. An official source at the Foreign Ministry told Qatar News Agency (QNA) that the State of Qatar condemns such criminal acts, which represent a threat to the Darfur peace process, and calls upon the international community to denounce this heinous crime. Qatar calls on the international and regional organizations to put pressure on the armed movements so that they tend to peace, the source said. The source expressed Qatar's condolences and sympathy to the Sudanese Government and to the families of the victims. It reasserted Qatar stable and firm stance against terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.
