RESOLUTION

Expressing disapproval of the Arab League’s decision to hold its 2006 summit in Khartoum, Sudan and calling on the Arab League, the Government of Sudan, the Sudanese rebels, and the world community to do all they can to end acts of genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan.

    Whereas the Arab League has tentatively scheduled its 2006 summit to be held in Khartoum, Sudan in March 2006;

    Whereas the Government of Sudan continues to allow acts of genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan and deliberately obstructs the ability of the African Union (AU) to stabilize the Darfur region;

    Whereas the decision to hold the 2006 Arab League summit in Sudan is an economic reward for a country that is currently under United States sanctions and should be under United Nations sanctions; and

    Whereas the decision to hold the 2006 Arab League summit in Sudan will encourage the Government of Sudan to continue to allow acts of genocide and other mistreatment against the people of the Darfur region of Sudan: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) disapproves of the Arab League’s decision to hold its 2006 summit in Khartoum, Sudan; and

(2) continues to call on the Arab League, the Government of Sudan, the Sudanese rebels, and the world community to do all they can to end the acts of genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan.
