Sudan accepts U.N. sanctions threat
Sudan will comply with a U.N. resolution threatening it with sanctions if it failed to restore security in the crisis-hit Darfur region. "Sudan is not happy with the (U.N.) Security Council resolution, but we will comply with it to the best of our ability," Osman Al Said, Sudan's ambassador to the African Union, told a news conference in Ethiopia on Saturday. "Because should we fail to do so, we know our enemies would not hesitate to take other measures against our country," he added, in remarks that backed down from Sudan's initial rejection of the vote. "Sudan accepts the decision of the (U.N.) Security Council on Darfur, because it is a member of the United Nations and has no other options." Al Said added.
