The Ides of March star returned from a fact-finding trip to Sudan this week and shared his hope for increased humanitarian aid to the region while testifying in front of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday (March 14).
Clooney was also granted a personal meeting with the US President in the Oval Office yesterday afternoon, according to The AP.
The Oscar-winning actor apparently asked Obama to work more closely with China to help end violence in war-torn Sudan.
"The good news for us is we feel like there's a commitment at a high level," Clooney told reporters after the meeting.
He also denied that he is interested in taking on an official government position, adding that he only wants to offer his suggestions in this "very complicated time in the world".
"I don't make policy. All I really can do is amplify the situation and help to bring a spotlight to it," he said.
Clooney has been a devoted advocate of bringing peace to Sudan for several years. Violence has only escalated in the region since the official end of the country's civil war in 2005.
He previously teamed with Harvard University, Google and the United Nations to support the Not On Our Watch project, which monitored Sudan via satellites in the run-up to its 2011 election.
