Sudan says receiving Kenyan confirmation to cancel decision on arresting President al-Bashir


14:31, December 02, 2011

KHARTOUM, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- Sudan on Thursday said it received confirmation from Kenya on working to cancel a ruling by a Kenyan court which orders the arrest of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.

Sudanese President al-Bashir on Thursday received in Khartoum Kenyan President's envoy and Foreign Minister Moses Wetangula, in the wake of the tension between the two countries following the Kenyan court's ruling and Khartoum's reaction expelling the Kenyan Ambassador in Khartoum.

Sudan's Minister of Foreign Affairs Ali Karti told reporters Thursday that "the Kenyan government has affirmed that it would work to cancel the decision. There are arrangements taken by the Kenyan government in this respect."

Karti said the meeting between al-Bashir and the envoy of the Kenyan president reviewed recent tensions between the two countries.

The Kenyan minister for his part told reporters that he delivered a message to the Sudanese president from his Kenyan counterpart Mwai Kibaki.

He said Kenya and Sudan were enjoying strong friendly relations and that the ties between the two countries would remain strong as both countries were members of the African Union, the Inter- Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), reiterating his country' s commitment to the principles of the IGAD, the African Union and the COMESA.
