Bashir meets Mubarak - AU can solve conflict in Africa

AP/ST 21 Sep 2006:
"Our aim is not to finalize the role of the AU at the end of this year, but to encourage them to continue forward and to set a positive example," Magzoub Al-Khalifa Ahmed, an adviser to Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, told a Khartoum press conference.

"They are able to solve the conflict in Africa," he said.

Al-Bashir, returning from the annual UN General Assembly session [in New York] stopped briefly in Cairo on Thursday and held talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. There was no comment on what they discussed.

Are there any north Africans among the AU peacekeeping force in Darfur? As I understand, Nigeria and Rwanda supplied the bulk of the troops.

I feel the lackluster attitude of the North African nations to the Darfur crisis is disgraceful to the AU Charter
