WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday said the United States pledged "broad engagement" with Sudan's government but warned of "disincentives" if there is any backsliding on promises.

Unveiling a new Obama administration policy toward Sudan, Clinton also said genocide was still continuing in Sudan's western region of Darfur.

"We have a menu of incentives and disincentives," Clinton said, while refusing to specify what the punitive measures might be. Sudan's government is already subject to U.S. sanctions.
