Sudan's foreign minister has accused the United States on Friday of denying a visa to President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted on war crimes charges, preventing him from taking part in a U.N. conference.
“It is with deep regret that I inform you of the refusal of the authorities of the United States, the host government, to give an entry visa to President Bashir and his delegation,” Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Karti told the U.N. General Assembly, according to Agence France Presse.
He strongly criticized the United States and called the visa denial “a serious violation of the principles and purposes set forth in the Charter of the United Nations.”
The Sudanese president is wanted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague 10 counts of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in Sudan's Darfur conflict.
