Republic of Sudan
Permanent Mission to the United Nations
New York

Ref. 264/06

The Permanent Mission of the Republic of Sudan to the United
Nations presents its compliments to the Permanent Mission of
(country name) to the United Nations, and with reference to
the Secretariat note Verbale DPKO/PD/NV/2006-00124 dated
September 22nd, 2006 (attached) concerning the invitation
addressed to Troops Contributing Countries and Police
Contributing Countries to nominate Police personnel, have the
honour to convey the following clarifications:

(1) Sudan's unequivocal position pertaining to Security
Council Resolution 1706 is total rejection for the various
reasons repeatedly reiterated by Sudan.

(2) In the absence of Sudan's consent to the deployment of UN
troops, any volunteering to provide peace keeping troops to
Darfur will be considered as a hostile act, a prelude to an
invasion of a member country of the UN.

(3) Sudan fully supports augmenting the African Union forces
with all
reinforcement means in order that they discharge their
Responsibilities
enshrined in the Abuja Agreement.

(4) Care is required in dealing with CPA and DPA, as UNMIS is
crafted to
serve the agreed upon CPA requirements and mandate.

The Permanent Mission of the Republic of Sudan to the United
Nations avails itself of this opportunity to renew to the
Permanent Mission of New Zealand to the United Nations the
assurances of its highest consideration.
