U.S. President George W. Bush said Thursday that he would not send American troops unilaterally into the western Sudanese region of Darfur.

"I made the decision not to send U.S. troops unilaterally into Darfur," Bush told a rally in Nashville, Tennesee. "I made the decision in consultations with allies, as well as consultations with members of Congress and activists."

Bush, who has been urging to deploy a UN force to work with African Union peacekeepers in the Darfur region, discussed the situation in the war-torn region on Tuesday with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

The Sudanese government said recently that some 9,000 civilians had been killed and about one million people had been displaced since the conflict erupted in the region in February 2003.

In June, an agreement was reached between the Sudanese government, the United Nations and the African Union on a hybrid peacekeeping operation of the two organizations in Darfur.

The United States welcomed the agreement and urged the Sudanese government to take steps in order to facilitate and accelerate the implementation of the agreement.
