The president revealed a new policy for interaction with the country on Monday.
Washington, D.C. (WiredPRNews.com) – President Barack Obama unveiled a new engagement policy for dealing with war torn Sudan on Monday. As reported by AFP, the president and other officials detailed a new approach for peacekeeping within the nation that involves offering incentives for improvement of the circumstances for the people in Darfur.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is quoted by AFP as stating of the new approach, “We are looking to achieve results through broad engagement and frank dialogue…But words alone are not enough. Assessment of progress and decisions regarding incentives and disincentives will be based on verifiable changes in conditions on the ground.”
A top advisor to Sudan President Omar al-Beshir, Ghazi Salaheddin, is quoted as stating in response to the United States’ plans, “Compared to previous policies there are positive points… we don’t see the extreme ideas and suggestions which we used to see in the past…I will say it is a strategy of engagement, not a strategy of isolation.”
