Today President Bush stated his belief that "the United Nations should not wait any longer to approve a blue helmeted force, a U.N. force of peacekeepers to protect the innocent people [of Sudan]" (from the press release). The United Nations Security Council met on Sept. 29th to discuss the latest report on Sudan. You can read the meeting record and press release online. This meeting did not vote to implement a peacekeeping force in Sudan, an action which Sudan's government has thus far been resisting. There are currently African Union troops in the region, but they are in need of additional support.
