Sudan shocked by Museveni's statement

Durban- South-Africa (PANA) -- The Sudanese minister of justice, Ali Mohamed Osman Yasni, declared Sunday night that he was "shocked by the comparison made by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni between the situation in the Middle East and the living conditions of blacks in Sudan".
"The conflict in Sudan is not racial but rather political in which the president of Uganda is involved," Yasni said.
On Saturday Museveni invited the Durban conference "to accept to talk about racial discrimination in Sudan".
Yasni said during the debate "that the president of Uganda should have talked about the situation he himself created in the north of his country and the genocide of which he is responsible in the Great Lakes".
"It would be a good thing to avoid accusing each other and rather think about means to achieve peace in Africa.
Only solidarity and co-operation will help us fight against racism and overcome our differences", he added.
