Sudan welcomes aid agencies in Darfur

Wed, 11 Mar 2009 23:19:12 GMT | PressTV

Sudanese people protest against the ICC's decision.
Sudan's ambassador to the UN says the government is ready to receive any well-meaning foreign aid group to work in the restive Darfur region.

Abdalmahmood Abdalhaleem Mohamad told reporters on Wednesday that the government was ready to replace the aid groups it expelled from the country last week, adding that the expulsion was irreversible.

"We're open to any well-meaning NGOs, other than those that have been expelled, to come, be they from the US, Europe, the Arab world or Africa," he said.

The Sudanese envoy also added that additional NGOs would be formally invited, should the need be approved in the three joint UN-Sudanese missions tasked with assessing critical humanitarian needs in Darfur.

The government expelled 13 major aid groups from Darfur for what it called harming Sudan's national security.

Khartoum's decision came after the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant against Sudan's President, Omar al-Beshir, for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur.

Sudan and many Islamic countries condemned the move as politically motivated.
