Sudan FM heads to Washington to meet US Bush

FM Lam Akol left Saturday evening for Washington on an official visit during which he will convey a message from President Omer al-Bashir to US President George Bush, ST reported 9 Sep 2006 - excerpt:
Bashir's message comes in reply to Bush's message conveyed by US Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Jendayi Frazer during her recent visit to Sudan at the end of August.

Frazer, had flown to Khartoum to convince Sudan to agree to the deployment of more than 20,000 U.N. troops and police in Darfur to take over from a struggling African Union mission there.

It is expected that Sudan would reiterated his proposal of the deployment of Sudanese army with former rebels who signed the Darfur Peace Agreement.
Wish we could see a copy of the message. I wonder what it says.
