China hopes Kenya, Sudan properly resolve issues about Sudanese president


19:19, December 01, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- China hopes that Kenya and Sudan can use dialogues and consultations to properly resolve the issue of Kenya's High Court ordering the arrest of Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir, a spokesman said here on Thursday.

The Chinese side reserves its view on the International Criminal Court (ICC) suing Omar Al-Bashir, president of Sudan, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hong Lei said at a regular press briefing.

"Both Kenya and Sudan are friendly countries to China, and the Chinese side hopes the two sides can resolve relevant issues through dialogues and consultation," said Hong.

According to reports, Kenya's High Court ruled Monday that the government must arrest Al-Bashir if he sets foot in Kenya.

The ICC in 2009 issued its first arrest warrant for Al-Bashir on five counts of crimes against humanity and two counts of war crimes.

A second 2010 warrant added three additional counts of genocide.

Kenya is party to the Rome Statute that created the ICC.
