Government condemns JEM's statements

The government has rejected the statements made by the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) leader, Dr. Khalil Ibrahim, in which he said that his movement is ready to overthrow the President of the Republic, Omer Al Bashir, if the International Criminal Court (ICC) decides to issue an arrest warrant against him.

The State Minister of Foreign Affairs, Al Samani Al Wasila, asked Khalil Ibrahim to stick to the Good Will Agreement recently signed with the government in the Qatari Capital, Doha.

Earlier, the JEM leader told "The Washington Times" that his movement will overthrow the president if the ICC issues an arrest warrant against him.

Dr. Ibrahim added that when the warrant comes, it would mean the end of Al-Bashir's legitimacy as President of the country.
