KHARTOUM (Reuters) - The U.N. special envoy to Sudan on Thursday said he and Sudan's foreign minister had agreed a plan to tackle the humanitarian crisis in Darfur and avert sanctions threatened by the U.N. Security Council.Phew. Problem solved. The UN envoy has an agreement with the bad guys that says they'll stop being bad.
Jan Pronk, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan's special representative, told reporters: "The government of Sudan has to be commended for keeping its promise (on action in Darfur)."
At least Pronk isn't waving it in the air.
