The United States will seek a Security Council vote early next week on a resolution to slap the first-ever sanctions on participants in the Darfur conflict in western Sudan, US officials said Friday. The United States will push ahead with the bid to sanction four men despite opposition from Russia and China, said Richard Grenell, spokesman for the US mission to the United Nations. Those two nations say that the sanctions might complicate Darfur peace talks in Abuja, Nigeria, where negotiators are working to beat an April 30 deadline for a deal. US officials said they hope to ease the Russian and Chinese concerns - and counter the possibility that they could cast vetoes and sink the resolution - by having the council approve a statement expressing support for the Abuja talks.
