Nigerian Minister of Foreign Affairs Joy Ogwu arrived in Khartoum on Wednesday evening for talks on situation in Sudan's western region of Darfur.
During her two-day official visit in Sudan, the Nigerian minister will hold talks with Sudanese government officials on situations in Darfur and progress of implementing the Abuja agreement on peace in Darfur.
Ogwu came from Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, where she had took part in a meeting between Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo and Chairman of the African Union (AU) commission Alpha Oumar Konare on Tuesday.
At the meeting, the Nigerian president warned of a possible genocide in the Darfur, urging the Sudanese government to accept a UN role in the troubled region.
"It is not in the interest of Sudan nor in the interest of Africa nor indeed in the interest of the world for us all to stand by and see genocide being developed in Darfur," Obasanjo said.
The Sudanese government has so far refused the deployment of UN peacekeeping forces in Darfur, saying it was a violation of Sudan's sovereignty and an effort by the West to colonize the African oil producing country.
