The US ambassador to the United Nations said that Security Council members were finalizing a new draft resolution on Darfur that he hoped would speed up the deployment of a UN-African Union peacekeeping force to the troubled region. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad said Monday that the US, Britain and France had met with African nations and military planners to discuss a timeline for how quickly the 26,000-strong "hybrid" force could replace the undermanned and poorly equipped AU force currently in the region. "The planners are here looking at the timeline issue and whether things could happen at a faster pace because it's in our interest to have an effective force on the ground as soon as possible," he told reporters at UN headquarters.
