NATO to intensify its role in Sudan’s Darfur region (Nicholas Kralev, 4/28/06, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that NATO leaders have agreed to take on a more “robust” role in Sudan’s Darfur region and urged other international bodies to prepare the way.
NATO diplomats said that earlier disagreements among the allies over involvement in Darfur had been resolved, but impediments remained, such as the Sudanese government’s objection to a U.N. peacekeeping mission.
“Everybody recognizes that the [African Union] mission, while it has been successful thus far, is not robust enough to deal with the continued violence in Darfur and, particularly, problems that are emerging in western Darfur given the situation and problems on the border with Chad,” Miss Rice said.
