The Sudanese government has reluctantly accepted a U.N. Security Council resolution that threatens international action over the crisis in its Darfur region.
Sudanese officials said Saturday they will comply with the resolution although they do not like it.
A Sudanese official initially rejected the U.S.-sponsored resolution after it was approved Friday, saying it conflicted with existing agreements with the United Nations.
The U.N. resolution threatens the Sudanese government with unspecified economic or diplomatic measures if it does not act within 30 days to disarm Arab militias accused of carrying out atrocities in Darfur.
Humanitarian agencies say more than one million residents in Darfur have fled their homes because of violence.
