Annan: What happens to 3m people if we have to leave?

Sep 5 2006 AP report via IHT - excerpt:
"I know that yesterday an important decision was taken by the Sudanese government, which I don't consider initially positive," Annan said.

The UN chief was speaking in this Mediterranean city north of Cairo after a meeting with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

"The international community has been feeding about 3 million people in camps and if we have to leave because of lack of security, lack of access to the people then what happens? The government will have to assume responsibility for doing this and if it doesn't succeed, it will have lots of questions to answer before the rest of the world," he said.

"I've always said that international forces will go there to help the Sudanese people, to help the government protect the people. We're not going to invade," said Annan.
