Sudanese President invited to Africa-South America summit

September’s Summit between African and South American nations will seek a joint vision between both continents, and construct the basis for the pluri-polar world that has already been born.

Since the first Africa- South America Summit held in Abuja, Nigeria in November 2006, it was agreed that the ASA Summit would be held every two years in Africa and South America on a rotational basis.

Sudanese foreign minister has appreciated the invitation which affirms firmness of the solidarity between the peoples of Africa and Latin America.

Minister Deng Alor also hailed the progressing relations between Sudan and Venezuela.

Sudan has appointed its first ambassador to Venezuela two weeks ago. Venezuela has established diplomatic relations with Sudan in 2005 as President Hugo Chavez’s administration seeks stronger ties with African nations.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has an outstanding arrest warrant against the Sudanese president issued in March 2009 in connection to war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Darfur.

    I don’t think that el bashir will go to Africa-South America summit due to his outstanding arrest warrant by ICC. Sudanese airways cannot fly non-stop to Venezuela, the airplane must stop for refilling at lest two times before it get there. However, el bashir will be arrested if he stops in any country on the way to summit.

      Hahaha.."Only a fool tests the depth of the water with both feet, African proverb." The end of an ox is beef, and the end of a lie is grief.

      This is a difficult lifetime in the President’s national obligations era! I wish you safe journey to ASA summit.

      You should remember that your brother in crime (Bashir)is not gonna get to South America through india ocean which is under command of Arabs terrories and Somali/Yemen pirates. The continant of South America is across the vase ocean of Atlantic but not pacific or Indian ocean.

      You brother may need to think twice before getting into that Russia/china made plane. It will just be like getting from the frying pan to the fire. Atlantic persee is under and always monitored my God fearing nation and those who cares and respect human life.

      Cement ties as you say is just in fear that your brother Bashir may/will be apprehended. Of course yes. But his invitation is not mean for soliderity nor to further build their strategies on governing their nations.

      Bashir and his later host are the crooks hated by most freedom lovers. Those are the guys isolated in this universe because of what they do and stance for. They need to be respected while they don’t wana do the same to the other people as well. If you know the golden rules then you should not even developed any guts to praise those that are maturally ignorance.

      The day of this summit is drawning nearer. As of today, my intinct tells me that Bashir will not make to Caracas because of fearing to be apprehended on the space. As long as he travel on Air, good things can happen. You know what that will be? Hahahahaha, clean arrest for the monster.

      As long as Bashir is not in the cage, the world is not safe place to be. I am glad to be part of those supporting the arrest of Bashir for crime again humanity.
      The soul of that millions died in Sudan because of Bashir ruthless regime will never raise in peace until he face the consequence of his crime.

      Never use the long stick to kill the snake, we are less concern about Bashir’s present but nothing is more dangerous than an idea. when it is the only one you have and there is so many ways how to kill the rates.

      we can’t guaranttee him good luck instead ruin. I wish ICC office the best success.

    They’re brave when they rape women and children, but they will never look the ICC in the eye because no criminals would want to drink a cup of tea while a judge stares at them.

      South America is like a hell for the Janjaweed commander in Chief Bashir. Since he has hidden himself from appearing in just Kampala where he could have run on foot to get in to Sudan or ran to his friend Koney to save him; if he was going to be arrested by the ICC bull dogs. Latin America is three days three hours, three minutes travel from Sudan; twenty first century Mac Nimir will you do it? Hahh, haaa, heh wad aljal, this time the children of Darfur and south Sudan will laugh at you; because you laugh at them for so many years.

        Don’t just waste your foolish words here. Do you remember what happened to your Uncle Bashir when he was invited in the following countries: South Africa, Uganda. If your uncle can not go to the nearest neighbour like Uganda which is just two or three hours journey. Then will Bashir really this time risk himself to travel to Latin America. How many hours from Khartoum to Latin America??? Shut up.

    Brilliant and wonderful idea to have that summit between Africa continent’s leaders and counterpart South-America continent’s leaders, but would the both continents combine and condemn the bloody evildeor Sudanese president Omer Al-Bashir for his evil crime done against his people in Sudan? I would be very happy too to hear that Omer Al-Bashir has been asked about his crimes committed against humanity in Sudan from that summit in September.

      I encourage the president of the republic of the Sudan to respond to Venezuelans president invitation.
      Because he (Bashir)is the forth coming world supreme leader.

      Hugo Charvez’s multipolar madness and American despise; all for his Venezuelan interest is menace to justice and Human Rights. There is no way genocide architects and massacre masterminders like the character of Bashir could possibly participate on intercontinental interests for mutual benefits. Charvez is not for Southern Sudan and the oppressed Sudanese of the New Sudan. He is wild and dangerous.
      However, pulling Bashir and his cohorts, wanted for Human Rights violations, out of their sanctary in Khartoum once in a while is a good idea. Suffering Sudanese and the world will be able to watch the truthfulness in the arrest warrant issued against them and look into the seriousness of the ICC.

        Dear Fellow Southern Sudanese,
        I am writing this letter with the hope that, some of the INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY personal may read it and understand it.
        First, I dont support any kind of killing people in any part of the world.
        It means i dont support the killing of the people of DARFUR in Sudan.
        But i think the two (2) million people killed in Southern Sudan and (4) million people displaced worldwide from Southern Sudan, should be put into consideration by the Unted Nation and the international criminal court.
        Some of the Darfur commanders and their brother president of Sudan Al bashir are responssible of killing the Southern Sudanese.
        Today we talk about killing people in Darfur, and forgrtting totally about what happen in Southern Sudan,
        it means there is no equality of human right judgement worldwide.
        The INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT should not be used as a tool for achieving what we want in business menner, while the problem of Southern Sudan is not yet over, then we run for business, using Darfur as a tool.
        Therefore, things should be solved one by one, that is first
        problems should be solved first, then comess the next.
        Where are the Administrative laws, Justics laws, Political laws and Good Governers under the Unted Nation policies looking to? Are all these focusting to Darfur only, because they are more human than the Southern Sudanese?
        I would like to say that, the international criminal court should look into people as the same people, no matter, whether being from any colour, raise, tribe, or what country or part of country without discrimination.
        In the case of Darfur and Southern Sudan, for me as a person, it is totally a discrimination of raise, tribe, and part of a country as far as human right is concern.
        Though the international community has turned their eyes back word to those people killed in Southern Sudan, some of the people will contnior to write for the right of those people killed by the Darfur and their master Al Bashir since 1955 till 2005.
        At the end i can say that, the unrest of the people in Southern Sudan is the responssibility of the international community, due to their being quite for so long.But still
        I thank the international Community for the CPA for the Sudanese people, but this does not stop the Judgement of the killers of the Southern Sudanese.

        I therefore, asking all the Southern Sudanese to ask for right of those killied in Southern Sudan, which is not yet achieved.
