NY, Oct. 2 (GHP) -- Ghana has replaced France as the Security Council President for the month of October.

During Monday''s closed-door session, chaired by Christian, on the attacks on the African Union Mission in Sudan no agreement could be reached on a formal statement and it was decided to continue the discussions Tuesday.
