TEXT- UN resolution 1828 on Darfur peacekeeping force


August 1, 2008 — The U.N. Security Council on Thursday July 31 renewed a mandate for peacekeepers in Sudan’s war-torn Darfur region for another year and agreed to discuss suspending any international war crimes indictment of Sudan’s president.

Following are key points from the resolution approved on Thursday:

- It says there is a need to bring to justice perpetrators of crimes against the civilian population; urges the Sudanese government to do so and condemns human rights and international humanitarian law violations in Darfur.

- It notes a request from the African Union for the council to use its power to suspend any indictment of Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir for war crimes in Darfur.

- It refers to concerns raised by members of the Security Council regarding ’potential developments’ subsequent to the International Criminal Court prosecutor on July 14 accusing Bashir of masterminding a campaign of genocide in Darfur. It notes ’their intention to consider these matters further.’

- It reiterates concern for the decreasing security of humanitarian personnel, including killings of humanitarian workers in Darfur.

- It reiterates there can be no military solution to the conflict in Darfur.

- It demands that all parties cease hostilities and immediately commit to a sustained and permanent cease-fire.
