    ADDIS ABABA, July 31 (Xinhuanet) -- The Sudanese governments will accept the UN Security Council resolution on Darfur crisis with "regret" and vow to implement it as scheduled, said a Sudanese diplomat here Saturday.

    "We fully regret about the resolution. But we accept it to implement. we regret that the UN Security Council has taken that decision. We accept it. We don't want to be another Israel in refusing the Security Council resolution," Osman Elsayed, Sudaneseambassador to Ethiopia said at a press conference.

    Elsayed said that the Sudanese governments will continue to disarm the Janjaweed and other militia in Darfur.

    "We have already started disarming the Janjaweed and other militia in the Darfur area. The concerned bodies including the Security Council needs to help us in the process of disarming the Janjaweed and other militia. It is difficult to disarmed all this groups in one months," he said.

    However, the Sudanese ambassador's remark is contradicted with what his government declared to reject the UN resolution.

    Sudanese Information Minister Al-Zahawi Ibrahim Malik said earlier that the resolution "does not conform with the agreements signed between the Sudanese government and the United Nations.

    It is recalled that the UN Security Council on Friday passed the resolution on the Darfur crisis, which asked the Sudan governments to disarm the Janjaweed in one months period , and to commit itself in resolving the Darfur crisis.

    The Sudanese ambassador said that no genocide has been committed in Darfur as the US government repeatedly told the intentional community.

    " The problem in Darfur is not Genocide. It is Just a tribal conflict. If there were genocide in Darfur, the government would no be willing to invite the concerted bodies to the area. UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, African Union chairperson and representatives from the United States and European countries havevisited the area. We have never been tried to close the venue to Darfur," he added.

    He also indicated that the government were deployed around 6,000 police troops from Khartoum to Darfur to Prevail peace in the area.

    "We are genuine in resolving this political problem. We will continue to do our best to bring lasting peace in Darfur," he added .

    The Darfur crisis has escalated into what the United Nations called the world's current worst humanitarian crisis since the indigenous revolted against Khartoum government in February 2003 as over 10,000 people were killed and more than one million displaced. Enditem
