Solana urges Sudan to fully cooperate with int'l tribunal
font size    

European Union (EU) foreign policy chief Javier Solana urged on Tuesday the Sudanese authorities to fully cooperate with the International Criminal Court (ICC).

In a written statement, Solana extended his welcome to Tuesday's decision by ICC chief prosecutor to present evidence to the ICC in the case of two individuals who have allegedly committed war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur.

"Mr Solana reiterates that the European Union is one of the strongest advocates of the International Criminal Court and appreciates today's decision, which will further the cause of peace," said the statement issued by Solana's office.

Solana stressed that peace for the region of Darfur, where crimes of particular gravity have been committed, "cannot be founded on impunity."

"For this reason, Mr Solana calls upon the Sudanese authorities to fully cooperate with the International Criminal Court, as stipulated in resolution 1593 of the United Nations Security Council," said the statement.
