During the recent years, al-Bashir adopted a defiant position toward the Hague based war crimes court and travelled across the world to take part in international meeting and conferences.

Last August Sudanese government announced considering Bashir participation in the meeting, despite the fact that Venezuela is a state party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

However in a statement released Sunday, the foreign ministry said the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ibrahim Ghandour, will lead Sudan’s delegation to the 17th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement that will be held in Caracas from 3 to 18 September.

The ministry’s spokesperson Ambassador Garib Allah Khidir Sudan’s delegation during the international gathering will develop six key issues including the ongoing efforts reach a peaceful settlement ending armed conflicts in the Two Areas and Darfur and the national dialogue process.

Khidir further added that these issues will be included in the main document of the summit.

The 17th summit will discuss issues related to terrorism, sustainable development and economic cooperation, , and the Middle East issues and the impacts of climate.

    Flying to the Americas is not an option for the fugitive Omar el Bashir; he will run but can’t dodge his trial at The Hague, he will face it one day!
