Sudan's Bashir calls opponents to talks

Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir addresses the National Consultative Council in Khartoum, on October 21, 2014Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir on Thursday urged opponents to join him in “national dialogue” talks, days after it was announced he would be seeking to extend his 25-year rule. Bashir, who took power in a 1989 coup, was named the presidential candidate for the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) on Tuesday, ahead of a presidential vote due next April. The 70-year-old is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for alleged war crimes in the violence-plagued Darfur region and has been accused of jailing opponents and limiting press freedom. He has been pressing sceptical opponents to take part in a “national dialogue” and repeated that call to party faithful at a congress in Khartoum.
