WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement after Special Envoy to Sudan Scott Gration and National Security Council Senior Director for Multilateral Affairs Samantha Power held a discussion this afternoon on Sudan policy:
 
“I am pleased that the Obama Administration is continuing to focus on the dire situation in Sudan.  Today’s discussion reflected the numerous challenges we face as we work to advance a more stable and secure Sudan.  I will continue to talk to the Administration about the comprehensive strategy for Sudan that was released a few weeks ago, and how we can alleviate the suffering of the Sudanese people.  Congress will work jointly with the Administration to ensure that we end the genocide in Darfur, that the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement between the North and South continues to be implemented in a fair and timely manner, and to prevent Sudan from becoming a terrorist safe haven.”
