Sudan Refuses to Reverse Decision on Expelled NGOs

The UN and several members of its security council have urged Sudan to reverse its decision to expel 13 foreign aid groups.

The United Nations (UN) and several members of its security council have urged Sudan to reverse its decision to expel 13 foreign aid groups; the country says it will never back down.

United States Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, told the 15-nation Security Council that, “We urge the international community to press the government of Sudan to reverse its expulsion edict and to ensure it does nothing to worsen an already grave situation."

Sudan ordered the aid agencies out of Darfur after the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for that country’s president, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, earlier this month over alleged war crimes in the western region.
