Sudan's Foreign Ministry demanded an apology Friday from UN chief envoy Jan Pronk, saying his comments on the fighting in Darfur were "unacceptable," state television reported. The broadcast also ran a statement from the Sudanese military that said Pronk, the head the UN mission in Sudan, was "persona non-grata." However, the Foreign Ministry did not say that Pronk would be asked to leave Sudan. The military said the remarks by Pronk - who said government forces had suffered two defeats in Darfur recently and that troop morale was low - amounted to "psychological war against the Sudanese army."
