Sudan's Bashir to skip Trump Muslim summit

Sudan's Bashir to skip Trump Muslim summit

In a press release on Wednesday, the USA embassy in Khartoum explained Washington's rejection of al-Bashir's participation in the meeting attended by President Trump, saying "we oppose invitations, facilitation, or support for travel by any person subject to outstanding International Criminal Court (ICC) arrest warrants, including President Bashir".

Sudan's President Omer al-Bsashir will not take part in the two-day Arab Islamic American Summit, said Khartoum on Friday ending speculations about his unwanted participation by the United States.

The United States is not a member of the International Criminal Court, but it has long sought to ostracize defendants who defy the court's arrest warrants, including al-Bashir, who has led Sudan for almost three decades.

Al-Bashir, who is on the International Criminal Court's wanted list for alleged war crimes, has assigned Sudanese Minister of State Taha al-Hussein to attend the event in Riyadh instead.

Al-Bashir wished the leaders participating in the summit all success, expressing hope that the summit would serve the interests of humanity and achieve its objectives.

In 2009, the ICC issued an arrest warrant against al-Bashir for allegedly genocide and crimes against humanity.

Just two days ago, the US embassy issued a statement voicing its opposition to al-Bashir's plans to attend the summit.

In 2005, the UN Security Council asked the ICC to probe crimes in the western Sudan region of Darfur, where according to UN figures, some 330 000 people have been killed in a conflict between Khartoum and mostly black African insurgents.

A week before leaving office, President Barack Obama eased some sanctions on Sudan citing positive actions by the government, including the reduction in offensive military activity and cooperating with the U.S.to address regional conflict and the threat of terrorism.

Sudan has close military, business and political ties with Saudi Arabia.
