Secretary General discusses Darfur with US envoy
On 15 December, the Secretary General of NATO, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, met with Ambassador Andrew Natsios, US Special Envoy to Darfur.
Ambassador Natsios, having just come back from an extensive mission in the region, discussed with the Secretary General the security and humanitarian situation in and around Darfur, which remains grave.
NATO has just taken a decision to extend for another six months its support mission – in the area of logistics and capacity training – to the African Union’s operation in Darfur.
At the same time the Alliance fully supports the UN proposals for a peacekeeping force.
