NATO Update: UN's Jan Egeland visits NATO

NATO Update May 30, 2006 confirms UN aid chief Jan Egeland, discussed Darfur and the role of the military in disaster relief during a visit to NATO on 30 May:
Mr Egeland met NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer to discuss NATO's continuing support for the African Union's peacekeeping mission in Darfur.

NATO recently agreed to extend its assistance to the African Union until September this year. This Alliance is helping to airlift African Union peacekeepers in and out of Darfur and training its forces.


They also discussed likely NATO support for a possible UN-led peacekeeping mission in Darfur, after the mandate of the current African Union force ends in September.
