MOSCOW, February 9 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow takes good measures in ensuring that Russian weapons supplied to Sudan are not used in Darfur, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.

“Russia within the framework of its military-technical cooperation with Sudan acts strictly in accordance with the international law,” Lukashevich said. “Deliveries of arms to the Government of Sudan are carried out in strict compliance with the intergovernmental agreements, which provide a mechanism for control over the end-user of the Russian military products.”

“Our ministry, using the end-user certificate, takes good measures in ensuring that the arms supplied to Sudan are not used in Darfur,” the diplomat confirmed.

At the same time, he said, it should be kept in mind that “anti-government groups that can use different weapons operate in the area of Darfur.” “The weapons can also be smuggled to them from other countries,” the Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
