Question Taken at the June 16, 2006 Daily Press Briefing

United States Support to European Union Conference on Darfur (Taken Question)

Question:   Would the United States support a European Union call for an International Conference on Darfur?

Answer:   The European Union has pledged that it will work for the full and rapid implementation of the Darfur Peace Agreement as a precondition for lasting peace and security in Darfur and an end to the suffering of millions of the people of Darfur. The European Union has stated that it will continue to be at the front stage by organizing in Brussels a donors meeting on the African Union Mission in Sudan (AMIS). The United States intends to have senior representation at the conference. We will also have senior representation at a pledging conference on reconstruction and development of Darfur, to be organized by the Netherlands in September.
