UN debating how to end Sudan-South Sudan fight

Diplomats from key nations are trying to reach agreement quickly on a new U.N. resoluton that would threaten non-military sanctions against Sudan or South Sudan if they don't halt fighting and return to negotiations.
Senior representatives from the five veto-wielding Security Council nations _ the U.S., Russia, China, Britain and France _ and South Africa met behind closed doors Monday and diplomats said they revised a resolution proposed by the U.S. on Thursday.
The draft resolution endorses the African Union's seven-point roadmap aimed at getting the two countries to step back from the brink of war and resolve their differences.
The diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity because negotiations are private, said the U.S. is pressing for a quick vote.
