Jordan's Islamic Action Front (IAF) on Thursday emphasized its support for Sudanese President Omar al- Bashir, who was accused by the International Criminal Court (ICC) last month of genocide in Darfur.

In a letter sent to the Sudanese president, IAF Secretary General Hamzah Mansour stressed on IAF's support to Bashir in facing the accusations.

"We support your steadfastness in facing the aggressive scheme and we stress our rejection to the accusations by the ICC, which is helpless and cannot persecute war criminals in the U.S. and the Zionist entity whose crimes against the Arabs and Muslims are continuous in Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan," IAF, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, said in the letter posted on its website on Thursday.

The IAF also stressed its support for the unity of Sudan and preserving its territorial integrity.

In July, the ICC accused Bashir of three counts of genocide in Darfur.

Last year, the ICC, which is the world's first permanent war crimes tribunal that was set up in 2002, issued an arrest warrant for war crimes and crimes against humanity against Bashir.
