Sudanese minister, British ambassador Ian Cliff discuss Darfur crisis
Ways of including the SPLM [new Government of South Sudan] in the Darfur peace talks were also discussed.
The meeting stressed how important it was to implement the peace agreement signed between the government and the SPLM and how to handle negative reactions sparked off by the report of the Abyei Border Demarcation Commission.

They also discussed arrangements for the visit to the country by the EU High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy, Javier Solana, early next week to discuss a number of issues related to stages of the implementation of the peace agreement.
Presumably this is part of Tony Blair's 5-point plan that he personally delivered to Khartoum 6 October 2005.
