The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman told journalists that, at the UN today, the US and Denmark are holding a meeting of Security Council, African Union and EU Foreign Ministers on Darfur. He also highlighted that the Prime Minister in particular wants the meeting to focus on the need for the UN to reinforce the African Union force pending vital deployment of the UN Force; the need for a political process to move forward the Darfur Peace Agreement; and, to help that, a ministerial level visit to Khartoum to set this out to the Government of Sudan; international leaders should be ready to meet soon to consider the next steps. The Prime Minister hopes that this meeting will set out strongly and clearly what the international community expects of Sudan. The Prime Minister remains very focussed on the issue of Darfur and the need to move it forward despite all the difficulties we are having in doing so.
