UN to press Sudan on Darfur force

Post by shammy on Thu Dec 06, 2007 12:13 pm

6th December,2007

The UN chief is sending envoys to press Sudan's leader to accept non-African troops in the peacekeeping force due to arrive in Darfur later this month.

Ban Ki-moon dispatched the high-level officials to a summit in Lisbon.

In 25 days' time a new joint African Union-UN force is due to take over from the existing overstretched African Union troops in Darfur.

But the deployment is in trouble - partly as Khartoum still has not agreed to accept non-African peacekeepers.

They include contingents from Thailand, Nepal, Sweden and Norway.

The force is also lacking 24 helicopters vital for operating in Darfur - an area the size of France.

So Mr Ban is sending two senior UN officials to Lisbon to meet Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir, who will be attending the European Union-Africa summit there this weekend.
