KHARTOUM (Sudanow.info.sd) - Sudanese Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour and seven other African foreign ministers will discuss with the UN Security Council on June 9 the opposed position of the African countries to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The eight African foreign ministers are members of the African Committee on ICC, which was formed by the African Union last year from Ethiopia, Algeria, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Uganda and Burundi.
The Committee had earlier held its first meeting abroad in The Hague with a number of ICC member states, according to press statements by the Sudanese Foreign Minister on Monday.
Ghandour said the Security Council would first hear a report by ICC Prosecutor-General and then would hear the African committee report on its position towards the ICC.
