Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged the United States and Britain on Monday to hold off on a push for tougher sanctions against Sudan, saying he needed more time to persuade the country to accept the deployment of UN peacekeepers in Darfur. Ban said he hoped to send UN experts to Ethiopia's capital next week to follow up on an agreement he reached last week with Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to work out UN support for a beleaguered African Union peacekeeping force. "My position is that, before we talk about sanctions, let me have some more political space to deal with this dialogue" with the Sudanese government, Ban told reporters after returning from a tour in the Middle East.
