Australia agreed to an initial 12-month stay in the African country but Senator Hill indicated that was likely to be extended.
Australia's contribution to the 10,000-member UN mission would include logistics and air-movement specialists and military observers, he said.
"I am actually expecting the first of them to go within a matter of days rather than weeks," Senator Hill said.
"It is likely that we will be requested to stay longer.
"We may well be requested to provide different specialised elements during the course of the UN program

• China Invests Heavily In Sudan's Oil Industry - Washington Post
For years, the rebels have attacked oil installations, seeking to deprive the Sudan government of the wherewithal to pursue a civil war that has killed more than 2 million people and displaced 4 million from their homes over the past two decades.

• China labor leader slams U.S. firms for 'slavery' - Japan Today 4.18.2005
A Chinese labor rights leader told a U.S. congressional committee that foreign firms, including U.S. companies, are treating workers in China in conditions similar to "slavery," he said in a statement released Monday.
|The PRC government wants all the benefits of running a slave state PLUS this
halo of moral posturing.|
It's up to the local government to reign in capitalist excess, you can't expect global corporations to willingly cripple themselves vis the competition.
|"that foreign firms, including U.S. companies, are treating workers in China
in conditions similar to "slavery," "|
Pathetic. Does he know how Chinese are being treated in Chinese companies?
Of course he knows. That's just another move of Chinese propaganda trying to divert the attention of their own problems (lack of human rights) to the others' tails.
Ask anyone looking for a job if they want to work in foreigner companies or Chinese ones. You guess the answer...
