Dutch to stay on in Sudan, says paper

The Dutch are likely to remain part of the UN peace keeping mission in Sudan for an extra year, according to the AD. The Dutch have been in Sudan since March 2006 and have around 30 military and police staff in the country.

The government is expected to make a decision on extending its presence at Friday’s cabinet meeting. The UN sent a peace keeping mission to Sudan in 2005 in an effort to end the conflict between government troops and rebels.
