The Sudanese government has accepted the UN package for Darfur, including the deployment of what is called a "hybrid" peacekeeping operation of UN and AU troops, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said Friday. Spokesman Sadeq al-Magli said the number of troops in the hybrid force "would be decided by the commander and his committee, and we have to state clearly that the entire command would be from the African Union." The comment reflected his government's long-standing opposition to the deployment of 20,000 UN troops in Darfur, as proposed by the UN Security Council.
