A United Nations Security Council delegation visiting Africa is expected to meet Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir here on Thursday.

The UN delegation comprising diplomats of its 15 member states is currently on a four-day tour to a number of African countries, including Sudan.

Earlier in the day, the team visited the headquarters of the UN-African Union (AU) peacekeeping mission in Darfur, known as UNAMID, in El Fasher, capital of north Darfur state.

"The people of Sudan are waiting for UNAMID to fulfill its promises," Rodolphe Adada, UN-AU joint special representative for Darfur, told the mission.

"The world has placed its confidence in this mission. It will wither away if we are not able to deliver," Adada said.

He appealed to the council for assistance in speeding up the deployment of forces. At full deployment, UNAMID is expected to have some 26,000 troops and police officers, making it the world's largest peacekeeping operation. But to date, only 10,000 uniformed personnel have been deployed.
