We hold regular and ongoing discussions with the UN on security in Sudan, both in New York and in Sudan. On 24 March the UN Security Council passed resolution 1663, renewing the mandate of the United Nations Mission in Sudan. The UN Secretary General's special representative for Sudan, Jan Pronk, briefed the Security Council on the situation in Sudan on 21 March raising his concerns about the security situation in Darfur. The international community is clear that the security situation in Sudan, especially Darfur, must be improved as a matter of urgency. We have therefore supported the deployment of a UN peacekeeping mission through the north and south of Sudan, and the African Union mission in Darfur.
