UN Pronk felt let down by Security Council and worries Sudan govt thinks now it can get away with anything

AP report (via CFD) Pronk Says Security Council Failed to Support Him - excerpt:
"I think that I didn't get sufficient support from the side of the Security Council," Mr. Pronk told the Netherlands' state broadcaster NOS on Tuesday, in his first interview since returning from Sudan.

"My worry is that the [Sudanese] government thinks now that it can get away with anything," he said.

"If they [the Sudanese government] have gotten away with decapitating a [UN] mission without consequences, they'll go further," Mr. Pronk told the NOS. "We're seeing that happen already. And I have large worries about the possibilities left for the UN in that case."
