Equatorial Guinea urges respect for international law regarding situation in Sudan

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea is continuing to contribute to the search for peace, dialogue and security on the world, with contributions through the highest decision-making body of the United Nations.

On the morning of 20th June, and during the working session of the Security Council on the situation in Sudan, the Ambassador, Anatolio Ndong Mba, accompanied by the Third Deputy Ambassador, Amparo Mele Colifa, and various coordinators and experts, reaffirmed the commitment of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea to continue to back respect for international law and international humanitarian law, praising as a consequence the work of the council with respect to the fight against impunity for serious crimes, and the promotion of the principles of justice and responsibility, in addition to a demand that all authors of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide be held accountable.

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea has once again presented its objections to the way of dealing with matters of a political nature on the African continent, by the International Criminal Court, an appeal which represents a common voice in Africa.

Along these lines, our country will always back dialogue as the main negotiating tool when seeking solutions to a crisis, and never violate the principles of international law, as is happening with the arrest warrant issued against a service Head of State, H. E. Omar Hasan Ahmad al Bashir, the president of Sudan.
