Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi who is the current chairman of African Union (AU), will hold a special summit on peace and security in Africa on August 30-31, 2009 in Tripoli.

Somalia, Darfur and Great Lakes region as well as post-election violence and unconstitutional regime changes in some African nations will be on the agenda of the special summit.

The foreign minister Mr. Deng Alor, will participate in the preparatory meeting of the summit on August 30.

The Director of the AU Department at the foreign ministry, Ambassador Ibrahim Ahmed Abdel-Karim, said the summit would discuss the support to the hybrid peacekeeping mission in Darfur (UNAMID), besides intensifying the cooperation and coordination between the Sudanese government and the AU-UN mission.

    The ICC needs to be alerted that the wanted criminal is preparing to travel aboard.

    The irony of the meeting led by Gadhafi is that how can they talk about unconstitutional regime changes in Africa while most of them came to power through a military coup? Bashir is going there to discuss unconstitutional regime changes in Africa. Sorry this is all but rubbish.

    What do mr president know about security since issue of Darfur is the biggest burden to the world ears,just train him about terrorism because there is no way we can stop endorsement from ICC with criminal wanted warranty against
    I urgent sudan laws makers to stop bashir from travelling because his plane could be drastically hijack when using air space by inteligent from ICC.

    Perhaps ones should say that Al-Bashir visiting Libya is nothing secretive or having consequential action as Libya or Libyan are not bound to follow rules set by international communities. Libya has maintained its monopoly power over other African countries, which recently voted not to abide by Hague conventions. Well, those who votes not to hand in Bashir were threatened or named as un-African by Arabs, and votes tailored to suit Arab masters or Muslims interests. What a joke! Legally, AOU is a mere sham and should be dismissed. It is with dismay that, one day Southern Sudan should rectify this purely Arab tailored organisation to an African most powerful organisation. I expressed this opinion even though it’s seemed absurd and oblivious, but I do know for sure that the fate of AOU is uncertain. I hope Deng Alor will represent me as Southerner.

      What would you expect from the self centered ArabS? Through the history of Africa they are good to expliot Africans to serve Arab causes.
      Guys ask you elders to tell when did this happen. Nkruma of Ghana when appeared as African intellectual at his time unfortunately was used to bring Africa to listen to Palestinian cause more than African poverty and ignorance. what a sad picture of yourself you shamefull Africans. Your brothers in Darfur are killed like flies and you hand down the power to the killer to finish them all. Gaddafi the man who cook things behind the scene said that Darfur problem is just about one stollen camel; those breed camels in Darfur are only Janjaweed tribes which he meant that the African tribes have stollen the camel of the Janjaweeds and then the Janjaweeds retaliated from the African tribes. Gaddafi we know what is lurking in your mind.By old African leaders as much as you can including Mbeki but we the new generation are the generation of change. YES WE CAN.

    Participating in Security Summits?

    African nations under chairmanship of Gadhafi is leading us to the doom. Where on earth could we invite monster like Beshir who is enlisted and most wanted for his crime by the ICC for spearheading the initiative of Genociding Darfurian people on a table of human security? What’s he gonna learn from it? Perhap the advance style of killing Sudanese indirectly other than directly.

    That’s just the same mystery my intinct fortells me from the very beginning that, Gadhafi leadership as AU chairman will open many gates and window to criminals, terrorize (Just, imagine the recent release of his brother in terror by scotish government) and probably the official invitation of Al qaeda to the heart of sub-sahara nation if the really true concerns leaders of African people will not say anything besides this suspecious move by the "Mujahadeen" bretheren.

    Bashir has become the iron fist of innocent sudanese people. He can talk anything at will, killing mercilessly, and illiterally claim to be a clean leader in sight of many. Folks, we don’t need the rocket scientist to detect to us who should talk part in that meeting. In his present, what are they gonna talk about? A new approach of killing people, terrorizing those that you don’t agree with? or how to keep our brother-in-crime (Bashir) from being arrested?

    It’s not just for the sake of Sudanese and African at large security, Bashir knows that once his time is over as President, Libya who place a significance role in protecting him from what they call the" Neocoloniasm" will offer him a safe heaven. Of course yes. If Gadhafi can house Al qaedas, Tallibans insurgent, probably somali pirates, the current release suspect of 1988 bomb, what will prevent him from offering his die-hard brother on the wrong sides of law and immunity of safe heaven? absolutely nothing.

    come on Africans!
