Sudan's President Invited by Saudi Arabia to Trump Meeting

Tuesday, 16 May 2017 03:37 PM EDT

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi officials close to the king say Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has been invited to an upcoming summit in the Saudi capital with President Donald Trump and world leaders from across the Muslim world.

Al-Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands for war crime allegations linked to the conflict in Sudan's western Darfur region.

The summit Trump is scheduled to attend Sunday, during his first overseas trip as president, is being organized by Saudi Arabia and will gather more than 50 top dignitaries from Muslim countries across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

The Saudi officials who confirmed the meeting spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.

Sudan is part of a Saudi-led coalition at war in Yemen.
