After a weeklong trip to three African countries, the UN secretary-general said he was encouraged by "credible progress" toward settling one of the continent's bloodiest conflicts in Sudan's Darfur region. Ban Ki-moon visited Chad, Libya and Sudan, meeting with leaders who promised to strive for a final settlement of the Darfur conflict at Oct. 27 talks in Libya. "I think we have made ... credible progress at this time toward the path to peace and security in Darfur," Ban told reporters Sunday. "I'm encouraged by this progress, but we must build upon this progress." The secretary-general said he asked a several countries in the region, including Sudan, Chad, Libya, Egypt and Eritrea, to work on a roadmap for the peace talks that the United Nations will develop. It will be discussed at a high-level meeting in New York on September 21.
