Prior to the departure of the US delegation in Sudan, US Representative Chris Smith revealed his vision for Sudan's future.

Speaking candidly on Tuesday, June 25th, Smith said he hoped a civilian government would enter office that was more focussed on human rights than previous Sudanese leaders.

Smith reiterated his call for a human rights focus as it would preclude regional extremist groups from office, as he believes groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood do not have a clear focus on human rights.

The delegation was recalled as a result of security concerns.
