The Sudanese government on Sunday reduced restrictions on humanitarian organizations operating in the country as it approved new amendments on guidelines of the humanitarian work, Sudan Tribune reported.
The new guidelines come "under the noticeable security improvement at all Sudan states," said Ahmed Mohamed Adam, Sudan's humanitarian aid commissioner.
The guidelines involve reducing the restrictions on movement of organization personnel, which lower requirements of "permission" to "notification" in "safe areas," while keep requirements of "permission" in hazardous areas.
He expressed hope that the new amendments would be a motive for achieving a joint humanitarian response to reach the aspired goals.
International humanitarian organizations usually complain about government restrictions on movement of their personnel at conflict areas.
Sudan government justified restriction on the organizations and UN agencies at hotspot areas to security reasons.
