President Bush says he is appalled by atrocities taking place in Sudan's volatile Darfur region.
In a statement Sunday, Mr. Bush said the genocide in Darfur has led to the spread of violence in neighboring Chad and the Central African Republic.
President Bush called on the Sudanese government and the rebel groups to immediately cease fighting and pursue peace.
He said Washington is aggressively pursuing the implementation of the United Nations resolution 1706 that calls for establishing a credible and effective peacekeeping force to stop the violence in Darfur.
Mr. Bush said he will continue to work with the U.S. Congress, the United Nations, the African Union, and the international community to provide aid to the victims of the conflict.
He added the United States is committed to achieving stability, lasting peace, and the restoration of basic human rights for the people of Darfur.
