NATO to Provide Aid in Darfur
Nato has agreed to offer air transport, training and logistics support to African Union (AU) peacekeepers in the Sudanese region of Darfur.
Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said the alliance had agreed a package of measures ahead of an international conference in Addis Ababa on Thursday.
The AU is increasing its force in Darfur to more than 7,700 in an attempt to end two years of civil war there.
Such assistance isn’t nearly enough to make a significant difference. But it’s better than nothing at this point.
