Britain on Friday circulated a draft UN resolution pushing for a comprehensive peace accord in Sudan that the Security Council expects to adopt at a rare meeting in Africa November 18-19, only the fourth time it has done so outside UN headquarters in New York since 1952.

The draft promises generous development assistance to the warring parties if they make peace.
