Obama’s first meeting with Ban Ki-moon focuses on Darfur

Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for the first time since the inaguration yesterday.  And they discussed Darfur.  The president declared “the violence in Darfur and inaction in the face of its worsening humanitarian crisis are “not acceptable,” and pledged to work more closely with the United Nations to bring peace to western Sudan’s conflict-wracked region.”

“It is not acceptable to put that many people’s lives at risk,” Obama said. “We need to be able to get those humanitarian organizations back on the ground.”

I am so glad to see President Obama taking a leadership role on this issue.  And making good on his promise during the campaign.

Thank you President Obama for being a champion for Darfur.
