Yeah, surprise, surprise. Oooo, how shocking.
Well, no, not really. It’s a very expected stance. Sudan is siding with Russia over this crisis, but that’s not the hilarious part. The hilarious part which made me laugh really hard is the one I put in bold.
August 15, 2008 (KHARTOUM) –The Sudanese National Assembly lent its support Moscow in its clash with Georgia over the border region of South Ossetia.
The Sudanese legislative body described the Russian response as “legitimate” and that Moscow had “the right to defend its citizens”.
Sudan also condemned the “crimes committed by Georgian forces against innocent citizens”.
“The genocide was committed in its worst forms and did not spare even the elders or children or sick or women” the foreign relations committee said in a statement.
Sudan and Russia enjoy good relations particularly in terms of military cooperation. Moscow along with Beijing blocked tough UN Security Council (UNSC) measures against Khartoum over the Darfur conflict.
Boy, oh boy, the pot calling the kettle black. This is such priceless entertainment.
I love it!
