Sudan group: Prepare to fight Western troops

KHARTOUM, Sudan -- European Union foreign ministers are to push for United Nations sanctions against Sudan if its government does not move to end the bloodshed in the troubled Darfur region.

The EU ministers, in a draft statement, said they would take "appropriate further steps" if Sudan does not take action to end the fighting and resume peace talks with rebels.

While not using the word sanctions, EU officials said the 25-member bloc would push for such a move by the U.N. Security Council if Sudan did not cooperate with efforts to end violence that has killed 30,000 in Darfur and caused 1 million to flee.
