Libyan leader says partition of Sudan is like "contagious disease"
Libya's Moamer Kadhafi warned on Sunday that the partition of Sudan would be a "contagious disease" that could spread to other African states. "What is happening in Sudan could become a contagious disease that affects the whole of Africa," Kadhafi said during the opening of an Arab-Africa summit in Sirte. "We must recognise that this event is dangerous," he said, according to AFP.
"The partition of Sudan is likely to change the map of the country. But other (African countries) will change too," Kadhafi told the event, which is being attended by Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir.
On Saturday, clashes erupted in Khartoum as opponents of Sudan's potential breakup after the referendum protested during a visit to the capital by UN Security Council ambassadors.
