The meeting was held on the sidelines of the Sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) in Nairobi, Kampala.

Sudan’s official news agency (SUNA) quoted the Sudanese Foreign Minister as saying that the meeting also discussed the ongoing arrangements for the upcoming visit of the Sudanese President Omer al-Bashir to Kampala besides the meeting of the joint security and political committees between the two countries.

Following ten years of strained relations, Museveni visited Khartoum last September where he and al-Bashir agreed to work together to bring stability in South Sudan and the region, and to end tensions between the two countries over the issue of rebel groups.

Last May, al-Bashir, who was indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, was one of the dignitaries at President’s Yoweri Museveni’s inauguration in Kampala.

The two presidents held a short meeting on the sidelines of the inauguration ceremony where Museveni invited Bashir to visit Kampala again within the framework of bilateral relations.

Uganda is a state party to the Rome Statute and has an obligation to arrest the Sudanese president.

However, during his inauguration, Museveni described the ICC as a “bunch court” to be ignored by African leaders, downplaying the its case against the Sudanese president.
