Britain's PM asks 'whole world' to pressure Sudan


Britain's PM asks 'whole world' to pressure Sudan
Associated Press report March 25, 2009 (UNITED NATIONS) -
The British prime minister says he wants "the whole world" to demand that Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir reverse his expulsion of 13 foreign aid organizations and three local ones that worked in Darfur.

Gordon Brown says the aid groups that al-Bashir kicked out were doing "vital work" that is "absolutely essential to the protection of people in Sudan" and should be allowed back in to the western region of Darfur.

Al-Bashir expelled the groups after the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant charging him with war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Brown spoke to reporters Wednesday after meeting with the U.N. chief.

A day earlier, a joint U.N.-Sudanese assessment reported that if the gaps in aid aren't filled, more than 1 million people in Darfur will go without food in May.
Too late. Disassociate from France and US on Sudan. Retire Malloch-Brown.
