Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir has said he plans to attend this week’s United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Bashir who is wanted by the International Criminal Court, risks being arrested on genocide charges if he sets foot in the US.

Washington has led calls for Bashir to face international justice over bloodshed in the now decade-old conflict in Sudan’s
Darfur region.

Sudan dismisses the ICC charges and claims reports of mass killings in Darfur have been exaggerated.

Washington has not said whether the African leader will be granted a visa.
