Sudan calls on US to issue visa for UN summit

18 September 2013, 20:30

Khartoum - Sudan has condemned the United States for suggesting that Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir should turn himself in to the International Criminal Court before he can go to the United Nations headquarters in New York.

The U.S. State Department has said that Washington received a visa request for al-Bashir, but that before going to the U.N. headquarters he should present himself to the ICC to answer for alleged crimes linked to the conflict in Sudan's Darfur.

A Wednesday statement from Sudan's Foreign Ministry said the U.S. is "not qualified to offer sermons and advice" on international law and human rights.

It pointed out that Washington is not itself a member of the ICC. The statement criticized U.S. support for Israel, and called on Washington to swiftly grant al-Bashir a visa.
