SUBJECT: DARFUR: FRENCH READY TO ADOPT UNSC RESOLUTION ON
HYBRID AU-UN OPERATION

REF: STATE 104844

(SBU) MFA Sudan Desk Officer Frederic Bouvier said on July
31 that France was prepared to vote for adoption of the "in
blue" text of a UN Security Council Resolution on the hybrid
AU-UN operation in Darfur, a text renegotiated on July 30 in
New York. He reported that a final text apparently developed
on July 28 was, at U.S. request, reconsidered on July 30, on
the basis of U.S. concerns about the timing of the transition
of the force from an AU operation to a UN operation. This
involved re-negotiation of OP 5, which the U.S., UK, and
French delegations succeeded in doing on July 30. Bouvier
said that the French side did not anticipate a further need
to re-examine the text and was ready to vote for the adoption
of the text that had "gone blue" the evening of July 30 in
New York.
