The President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir has found a new friend, President Tomislav NikoliÄ‡ of Serbia.
President Tomislav awarded him with the Medal of the Republic of Serbia for accomplishments in developing and strengthening peaceful cooperation and friendly ties between the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Sudan as the country celebrated the Serbian Day of Statehood.
The Republic of Serbia is a signatory of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. However, Bashir was not present to receive the award.
The International Criminal Court has issued two arrest warrants to date containing charges against him.
@VirginieAmato No, there’s no chance. The ceremony already took place and he expressed his regret for not having everyone there in person. — Milica Kostic (@MDKostic) February 22, 2016
