Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir to visit Uganda next week

Uganda is not planning to arrest al-Bashir, in spite being a signatory to the Rome Statute that established the ICC, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni's press secretary Don Wannyama said. "We therefore call upon the government of Uganda to fulfill its obligations under global and domestic laws by arresting and surrendering President Omar al-Bashir".

A communique issued late on Monday after talks between Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni and Sudan's President Omar Hassan Ahmad al-Bashir who was visiting the East African country, said the direct flights would "promote trade, tourism and investment" between both countries.

Meanwhile Presidents Museveni and Bashir also agreed to increase the trade and diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Sudan imports 20 percent of Uganda's coffee, "the single biggest export market" for one of Uganda's top revenue earners, according to the statement. Among the issues they discussed were opportunities for trade and investment, immigration, air transport, regional issues and security matters.
