The UN Security Council urged all rebel groups to attend peace talks with the Sudanese government starting Saturday to try to end the 4 1/2-year conflict in Darfur and threatened "action" against any party seeking to undermine the peace process. In a statement read at a formal meeting on Wednesday, the council stressed "the urgent need for an inclusive and sustainable political settlement in Darfur" and said the first step should be a cessation of hostilities to be overseen by the United Nations and the African Union. "The council underlines its willingness to take action against any party that seeks to undermine the peace process, including by failing to respect such a cessation of hostilities or by impeding the talks, peacekeeping or humanitarian aid," it said.
