Summary: S.Res.660 — 110th Congress (2007-2008)
Passed Senate amended (09/27/2008)
Expresses the sense of the Senate that: (1) the United States should seek a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Darfur, Sudan, and should continue to pursue a political solution to the deployment of the United Nations-African Union Mission peacekeeping forces in Darfur; (2) the United States supports U.N. Security Council Resolutions 1556 and 1591 imposing an arms embargo on all belligerents in Darfur; (3) in light of the transferred arms in Darfur from China and Russia and the government of Sudan's insistence that it will not abide by the embargo, all U.N. member states should cease all arms sales to the government of Sudan; and (4) the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations should seek an expansion of the arms embargo imposed by Resolutions 1556 and 1591.
