“29. The European Council expressed its grave concern about the situation in Sudan/Darfur and emphasised the importance of respect for human rights and improvement of security conditions. It called upon the Government of Sudan and on the other parties to meet the demands set out by the international community. The European Council reaffirmed its continued support to the African Union and its readiness to provide assistance and expertise to the expansion of the African Union's mission in Darfur. In this context, the European Council endorsed the Council conclusions of 2 November and encouraged the Council and the Commission to take the necessary action for their implementation, not excluding the use of sanctions, as a matter of urgency.”
