Slovene president urges UN to warn world about catastrophe in Darfur

Slovene president Janez Drnovsek has sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and some other well-known personalities, calling upon them to warn the world about the catastrophe and to join Slovenia's humanitarian action.

Drnovsek calls upon the UN to use its mandate for measures in Darfur, to call a Security Council meeting and to immediately organize an operation which NATO could join with its big transport capacities.

"We are all responsible for what is happening, History will be our judge. No excuses will help us. Millions of innocent victims will accuse us. There is still time for action. Seize the opportunity," Drnovsek wrote in his letter addressed to Annan.

"Now it is the time; it will be too late tomorrow. Join our small Slovene humanitarian action and this will no longer be a drop in the sea, but the sea itself," he wrote in the letter.
