The African Union is urging the United Nations to do more to provide the resources needed to ensure the establishment of a hybrid peacekeeping force in Darfur.

A statement issued Tuesday by the African Union Peace and Security Council welcomes progress made in putting together the AU/U.N. peacekeeping mission in Darfur that will be known as UNAMID. But the statement read to reporters by the Council chairman, Angola's AU ambassador Manuel Augusto, says the United Nations must take the lead in gathering the resources needed to have a strong force in place by the end of the year.
