Sudan's President warns foreign peacekeepers, diplomats
Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir warned foreign peacekeepers, diplomats and aid workers to obey Sudanese law or face expulsion as he visited Darfur on Sunday for the first time since the International Criminal Court issued a warrant for his arrest. "I have a message to all the diplomatic missions in Sudan, the NGOs and the peacekeepers," Bashir said, according to AFP. "They have to respect the rule of the country. If anyone goes further than the rule of the country, we will kick them out directly."
On Saturday, Al-Bashir has said the "West is not qualified to speak about justice and human rights," referring to the crimes of annihilation of the Red Indians and bombing of Japanese towns with atomic bombs besides the crimes committed in Vietnam. He was addressing a huge mass rally of the citizens of southern Sudan at the Friendship Hall in Khartoum Saturday.
The Sudanese leader also pointed out that former US president George Bush lied to its people and the whole world on existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and killed two million and displaced five million Iraqi people. President Al-Bashir vowed that Sudan will never be subjected to "neocolonialism."
