Eliasson cautiously hopeful about Sudan
"Eliasson cautiously hopeful about Sudan,"

"the Dictator has been set aside. But it is uncertain if the Sudan goes to a democratic future, says former toppdiplomaten Jan Eliasson."

"– should probably be equipped with realism."

"As responsible for the UN's humanitarian operations in the 1990s, special envoy to Darfur in the 2000s and later deputy secretary general of the UN, Jan Eliasson had a lot to do with Sudan's now deposed president Omar al-Bashir."

" I know him fairly well from the years. He was a very determined leader. I tried to get him to move in the right direction for the call, " says Jan Eliasson to the TT."

"Arab winter bugbear"

"If a democratic government can be put in place after three decades of dictatorship is unclear, says Eliasson."

" It is uncertain after this long period. There is something kind of new wave of the arab spring that we are now seeing in Algeria and the Sudan, which is quite encouraging. But the changes in so strong, authoritarian structures are difficult to implement and the opposition is very weak and not comprehensive, " he says."

"– Syria has dampened my hope. And we saw what happened in Egypt."

"Even Sudanexperten Johan Brosché, a researcher at the department of peace and conflict research at Uppsala university, believes that it is difficult to assess how the country will develop. However, as Eliasson he highlights the developments in Tunisia as a successful example of the arab spring."

"– Sudan has had a democracy before, although it has been in short periods of time, and there is a experience in it, " he says."

"That the president set aside, however,"

"– Various rebel groups have, for 30 years, tried to dismiss him. Even the west has contrived to get him removed, then, during the 1990s and early 2000s saw al-Bashir of sudan as a sponsor of terrorism."

"this is the culmination of the peaceful popular protests and to set up a dictator in this way, I think, is very impressed," says Johan Brosché."
