Addressing a press conference in Nairobi on Tuesday, Sudan's ambassador to Kenya, Majok Guandong, said the case opened by the ICC against the President is an attack on the country's sovereignty. [Majok Guandong]: "We in the Sudan categorically reject the ICC's case against our president.
We think this is an aggression on the Government of Sudan; the President of the Republic of the Sudan
is the representative of the people of Sudan, representing the sovereignty of the country, representing the institution of the state of Sudan."
He said that Sudan did not sign the Rome convention that established the ICC and therefore the court does not have jurisdiction in Sudan.
added that the Government of National Unity will continue to seek a peaceful settlement to the conflict in Darfur.
