Sudan’s president to Tehran today for NAM summit


August 28, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The president of Sudan, Omer Al-Bashir, is due to travel to the Iranian capital Tehran on Wednesday to participate in the summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).

Al-Bashir will join 30 heads of states, including Egypt’s new president Mohammed Mursi, in attending the summit which will take place on 30 and 31 August.

Sudan’s President will be accompanied by the minister of presidential affairs Bakri Hassan Salih and minister of foreign affairs Ali Karti.

On the summit’s agenda are a new push to quell the conflict in Syria, condemnation of Western sanctions on Iran and other NAM countries, including Sudan, and support for the creation of a Palestinian State.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon will also attend the summit “as an observer”.

Host nation Iran is unlikely to cooperate with the International Criminal Court (ICC) which seeks the arrest of Al-Bashir on charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide he allegedly masterminded in his country’s western region of Darfur.

NAM was created in 1961 by a group of nations that saw themselves as not aligned to either the United States or the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Today it has 120 nations as members including “Palestine”.

      Birds of the same Feathers-Flock-together. The genocidal of Khafurri, Atayyeb Mustafa of Cairo, Lion of Damascus and Crowned terrorist of Tehran are on the highway on NAM board, a car without a brake or Steering wheel. For sure, Atayyeb Mustafa of Cairo and Lion of Damascus are nowhere to be seen in the photo above, but they are on board.

          Mursi’s attitudes toward non-Muslim Brotherhood Egyptians are the same as that of Atayyeb Mustafa toward non-NIF N.Sudanese.

          Nobody in South Sudan is worrying about Arab summit that is going to take place. Bashir has been in his house not to visit any of his nieghbourhood. let him take fresh air today.

        American and Israeli and propaganda aside, what do you have against Ahmedinejad. He is the predident of a very brave nation. What have they done wrong? supported Hamas? that means supporting the oppressed and occupied people to get their freedom. Trying to develop nukes? good luck to them, who is asking Israel about her Nukes?

          Sudan ana,
          are you dumb too ? You read what your fake Muslims write about South Sudan in Sudan Tribune. If you want Sudan Tribune to block people who say bad words everyday in this discussion Board, Penguin Arabs will be the first people to be banned. You are dumb ass idiot. Shut Up stupid.

          Sudani ana,
          You can;t have it both ways.
          You can’t ask Sudan Tribune to allow our fellow countrymen to insult the South Sudanese religious beliefs whether it be Christianity or their own tribal beliefs then not accept insults to our religion.
          It is called double standards and you other extremists from our country on here are just as guilty as inciting religious hatred

    Homo-summit was intended to targeting the Mighty Israel but Am not worry about it because God is always with them. And their friends are also there watching very closely for anything that may happened to them. I am sure South Sudan is more readily to helps his friend!
