Omar Al Bashir, Sudan

Sudanese President Omar Al Bashir, who is currently being sought by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to answer to charges of crimes against humanity, recently called on Russia to protect Sudan from aggressive acts of the U.S.

“We are thankful to Russia for its position on the international arena, including Russia’s position in the protection of Sudan. We are in need of protection from the aggressive acts of the United States. We are currently launching a programme to modernize our armed forces and we agreed with the defence minister that Russia will contribute to this. America succeeded in dividing Sudan into two countries and now is seeking to further divide it… we believe that what happened in our country is the result of American policy,” Bashir said.
