With Darfur rebels still not in peace pact, Annan to consult African leaders on next steps

Voicing concern that two factions in Darfur missed a deadline to sign a peace accord already endorsed by the largest rebel group, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan today said he would consult with African Union (AU) leaders on possible follow-up measures, UN News Centre reported June 1, 2006:
The Secretary-General strongly believes that the only way forward in addressing this devastating conflict is through the implementation of the Darfur Peace Agreement, as well as the decisions of the African Union Peace and Security Council.

Assistant Secretary-General Hedi Annabi will brief the Security Council tomorrow on the mission he undertook last month with Mr Annan's Special Envoy Lakhdar Brahimi for talks with Sudanese Government leaders talks on strengthening the current AU mission in Darfur (AMIS) and its possible transition to a UN peacekeeping force.
