Hillier On Darfur

Published: Wednesday, 05/25/2005 12:00 am EDT

Liberal MP Keith Martin: My question is regarding your return from the Sudan. I think this is a topic that all of us are very interested in. I was there a few years ago and it was my assessment that the government in Khartoum would have no interest really in stopping the killing in Darfur and that they're playing the peace treaty off in the south with the situation in Darfur. The AU force right now ­ that's there as an observer force ­ and you get this Rwandan déjà vu going on again.What, sir, would it require for the international community to have a stabilization force in Darfur with the robust rules of engagement, a Chapter 7, that would enable that force to really stop the killings, torture, and rape occurring?
