On Palestine, Sudan Tells ICP It'll "Present the Project" at UN, Rebuffs ICC Question

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive

UNITED NATIONS, November 28 -- The day before the vote on Palestine become a UN Observer State, as some countries make public and explain their positions, the question arose of how and by whom the Observer State resolution will be introduced.

  Earlier, Inner City Press put the draft and final versions of the resolution online, and reported discussions at the UN that Palestine could not introduce its own resolution.

  The chair this month of the Arab Group at the UN is Sudan, whose Permanent Representative Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman was asked if he would in fact introduce it, in light of the International Criminal Court indictment of President Omar al Bashir.

  Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman declined to answer these questions on his way into the Security Council Wednesday morning. But later Inner City Press asked him directly. Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman exclusively told Inner City Press, No one can stop us from speaking on and presenting the project.

  He went on to say, I don't understand some reporters there, they just want things to be done their way, they have no knowledge of the procedures or precedents.

   Inner City Press asked the Permanent Representative of Morocco, which has been representing the Arab Group in the Security Council, most recently on Gaza.

  Aftersaying he has been trying to reach the Palestinian delegation he replied, that was the Security Council, tomorrow is the General Assembly. So, there, Sudan represents the Arab Group. Watch this site.
