Sudan serves UN exit deadline

World body says Security Council to decide on mission, irrespective of what Khartoum wants.

    It is up to the United Nations’ Security Council, not the Sudanese government, to decide whether the UN mission in Sudan continues after the country splits in two, the world body insists.

    The remarks come after Khartoum said it had officially informed the UN secretary general that the mission's term would end on July 9, the day the south is expected to secede.

    The mission, known as UNMIS, is working to implement a 2005 peace agreement that ended decades of civil war between the north and south.
