Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on Saturday vowed to destroy the institutions of injustice and liberate Africa from “modern colonialism,” whether politically or economically.
Al-Bashir made the remarks when addressing a mass rally at Khartoum airport upon his arrival from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
“The Western countries do not know that I represent the Sudanese people. We are bigger than the oppressors and arrogant circles,” said al-Bashir.
He added that “we will break all institutions of injustice and liberate Africa from the modern colonialism, whether politically or economically. We stand firm like mountains and we will not be broken.”
On March 2009, the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant against al-Bashir for allegedly committing war crimes in Sudan’s Darfur region.
However, Sudan refuses to deal with the warrant, saying it is not a signatory of the Rome Statute.
