Once more, African leaders have confirmed solidarity with the Sudan when President Bashir participated in the AU 27th Summit (Kigali 10-18 July). The arrest warrant by the ICC did not stop the President from visiting Egypt, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, India, China, Uganda, Djibouti, Indonesia and Nigeria. The Kigali summit renewed its commitment to the African consensus of rejecting the International Criminal Court's selective targeting of African leaders. The Rwandan Minister of Foreign Affairs dismissed the ICC's contacts about President Bashir's visit as "a mere distraction"....
