Washington, February 24 : Hollywood actor George Clooney, who met U. S. President Barack Obama on Monday night, revealed that the White House would be appointing an envoy to war- and famine-ravaged Darfur, Sudan.
"They said they would appoint a full-time, high-level envoy that would report directly to the White House. This would be a huge policy step," Politico. com quoted the actor, who has repeatedly travelled to Darfur, as telling reporters.
"It''s good to hear because there was some concern that this could fall off the radar," he added.
