Open in new window The African Union agreed to move the coming AU summit from Malawi to Addis Ababa next month responding to a request by the Sudanese government as the Malawi insisted not to host the President of the Republic Omer Albashir. Malawi has asked the AU in May not to invite President Albashir to the summit, citing fears of economic consequences after the country was denied $350 million in US aid money over reasons including its decision to host President Albashir at a regional summit in the capital Lilongwe last year.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) issued charges against President Albashir of war crimes he allegedly masterminded in Darfur the western region of Sudan. The ICC asked signatory members to arrest President Albashir if he visits them, but countries such as Malawi, Kenya, Chad and Djibouti have earlier allowed Mr. Albashir to visit without arresting him though the first two later refused to receive him again.
The AU sent a message to Malawi saying that it had no right to dictate who can attend the summit. The Malawian cabinet has decided not to host the summit.
