African Union Commission addressed to President Omar Al-Bashir and further
discussions among them. The technical consultations were attended by
delegations from the Government of Sudan, the African Union and the United

The participants discussed the comprehensive clarifications jointly
provided by the African Union and the United Nations on the Hybrid
Operation in Darfur, as contained in the report of the Secretary-General
and the Chairperson of the African Union Commission on the Hybrid Operation
(S/2007/307/Rev.1), in particular its specific recommendations about the
mandate and structure of the Operation, and details on its various
components and tasks. In view of the explanations and clarifications
provided by the AU and the UN as contained in the presentation, the
Government of Sudan accepted the joint proposals on the Hybrid Operation.

The meeting concluded that the proposed operation would contribute
considerably to the stabilization of the situation in Darfur in its
political, humanitarian and security dimensions. The participants
underlined the need for the resolutions/decisions authorizing this
Operation to be adopted by the United Nations Security Council and the
African Union Peace and Security Council, taking into account the

the UN Heavy Support Package for AMIS held on 9 April 2007 and the
high-level consultative meeting on the AU UN report on the Hybrid Operation
held in Addis Ababa on 11-12 June 2007.

The participants further agreed on the need for an immediate
comprehensive ceasefire accompanied by an inclusive political process, and
stressed the need for troop and police contributing countries as well as
donors to facilitate the early and successful implementation of the Hybrid
Operation. The Sudanese delegation also raised the issue of exit strategy

will be periodically reviewed subject to the conditions on the ground and
