SO/ Sudan to dominate UN-African Union agenda..

Halkaan ka akhri

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia — A senior diplomat says the conflicts in Somalia and Sudan will dominate the U.N. Security Council’s meetings with African Union officials.

British U.N. Ambassador John Sawers says Sudan’s Darfur region will be on the agenda Saturday.

But Sawers says the Security Council has reached no decision on an international arrest warrant against Sudan’s president on charges of war crimes in Darfur. The AU has asked for a one-year deferral on the warrant.

This week has seen an upsurge in fighting in Somalia, with Islamic insurgents vowing to topple the weak, U.N.-backed government.

On Friday, the Security Council condemned the violence and strongly supported Somalia’s leadership.
