In a unanimous draft resolution, UN Security Council promises Khartoum help for peace
Sudan-UN, Politics, 11/19/2004
In its special session in Nairobi, the UN Security Council reached a unanimous agreement on a draft resolution to establish peace in Sudan on the ground it will be adopted today ( Friday) in conclusion of the special meeting to be held in Nairobi, Kenya.
The draft resolution states that the international group will provide aid for Sudan after signing a comprehensive peace agreement to end the civil war in the south, and also calls for ending the crisis of Darfur to the west of Sudan.
The current president for the UN Security Council, John Danforth, described the resolution as balanced and aims at pressuring the Sudanese government and the southern rebels to sign a final peace agreement before the end of the current year after negotiations in Kenya lasted for more than two years.
The American ambassador added that Khartoum and the southern rebels will give the council a written commitment to reach an agreement in the negotiations which will be resumed on November 26th. He indicated that the resolution is built on the conviction that halting the war between Khartoum and the south is necessary to settle the conflict in Darfur.
The resolution also calls for halting the attacks which target civilians in Darfur as the UN considers what is taking place there as the biggest humanitarian tragedy taking place in the world.
