Sudan's al-Bashir will not attend Saudi summit for "special reasons"

"The President of the Republic, Marshal Omer Hassan Ahmed al-Bashir has apologised to his brother the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdul Aziz for attending the Islamic American Summit held in the Saudi capital Riyadh for special reasons", SUNA said.

Late yesterday, Sudan's Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour, speaking to reporters in Geneva, confirmed that Al-Bashir would attend.

A Saudi invitation to al-Bashir had outraged human rights advocates, who called it a breach of long-standing USA policy.

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir will not attend a gathering in Saudi Arabia on Saturday where U.S. President Donald Trump is scheduled to make his first global trip, state news agency SUNA said on Friday.

Saudi Arabia is holding the event under the slogan "Together We Prevail" in hopes of fighting extremist ideologies and cooperating with American and Islamic allies to strengthen economic relations.

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. The United Nations estimates 300,000 people have died in the conflict and some 2.7 million have fled their homes.

Trump reportedly asked Comey to end investigation of Michael Flynn
Comey's memo is accurate, there is no indication that President Trump willfully attempted to bribe the F.B.I. director. We believe the issues raised by the Comey memos are so vital that the public should have access to them without delay.

The tribunal issued arrest warrants in 2009 and 2010 for Bashir for alleged crimes related to the conflict.

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

NAN reports that leaders of more than 56 countries will take part in the summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Sunday, including U.S. President Donald Trump.
