The resultion, found below, has passed the SC by a count of 5-0. Iceland (away) and China failed to vote.

AS's resolution
The General Assembly of The United Nations,

Deeply disturbed by the ongoing humanitarian disaster in the Darfur region,

Bearing in mind the Sudanese government's refusal to allow international aid to the region and support for the Janjawid,

Noting with deep concern the recent expulsion of the UN envoy to Khartoum,

Having considered the apparent insufficiency of the existing (M)UN force in the region,

1. Calls on the Sudanese government to co-operate with the UN in order to minimise this humanitarian crisis;

2. Authorises that further action be taken without the consent of the Sudanese government if they fail to comply;

3. Recommends that a further UN peacekeeping force be sent to the Darfur region to reinforce the existing one, its composition to be decided at a later date.

4. Requests all nations that feel able to do so to pledge a number of troops to be assigned to the Darfur region, no matter how small the number.

Australia welcomes the passing of this resolution.

We will work with the mission to provide logical or administrative support to the mission, but once again would like to make clear that any peacekeeping contingent can be ruled out.

China would have abstained on this issue.

We have decided that although at this moment in time we won't pledge troops, but we will carry on pressurising the Sudanese government into giving UN troops a right to be there. Once this has been achieved, we will send our own troops in.
