As UK Envoy to Jordan Calls Sudan's Airport Worst, What Was He Doing There?

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, November 30 -- When the UK's Ambassador to Jordan publicly opines that in his experience the airport in Khartoum, Sudan is the worst in the world, is it a form of naming and shaming? Or does it just given rise to the question, what was Ambassador Peter Millett DOING in Khartoum?

Earlier today Millett tweeted, "Which is your worst #airport in the world? For me it's #Khartoum Last week it was hot, dirty and devoid of any information or welcome."

Inner City Press has been in the Khartoum airport, and like many around the world it leaves a lot to be desired. But the lack of diplomacy seemed noteworthy, so when Inner City Press saw Millett's tweet it replied from @InnerCityPress, "This is classic UK diplomacy."

This in turn was picked up by the Sudan Tribune, which also asked, what was Millett doing in Sudan? Millett meanwhile has replied only to an ICT consultant who follows, what else, the Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan where Millett is based.

What's next, Millett's review of refugee camps? We'll be happy to publish what he puts out. Watch this site.
