Sudan: Oil

Volume 458: debated on Tuesday 13 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions she has had on a potential oil embargo on Sudan with EU counterparts. (126204)

Recent discussions with our EU partners have focussed on building support for further targeted sanctions against individuals involved in the Darfur conflict and an extension of the existing UN arms embargo on Darfur to the whole of Sudan. We have made it clear to partners that we believe further measures will be necessary if this package does not deliver the requisite co-operation from the parties to the conflict in Darfur.
