The African Union chairman said Sunday that outside troops would not be needed for the new Darfur peacekeeping force in Sudan because of sufficient troop commitments from African nations. "I can confirm today that we have received sufficient commitments from African countries that we will not have to resort to non-African forces," AU chairman Alpha Oumar Konare said in a statement following a brief meeting with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir. The Sudanese government is adamantly opposed to non-Africans playing any major role in the hybrid UN-African Union operation that was authorized by the UN Security Council on July 31 and will be made up of 20,000 peacekeepers and 6,000 civilian police.
