Sudan expels UN agency chief over ‘interfering’ in domestic affairs
Posted on April 9th, 2014

Sudan has expelled the head of a UN agency and accused her of interfering in domestic affairs, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday. Pamela DeLargy, an American who headed the UN’s Population Fund office in Sudan (UNFPA), “was asked to leave,” AFP quoted ministry spokesman Abubakr al-Siddiq as saying. “She was not abiding by the country’s laws, and… she was interfering in the country’s domestic affairs in a manner that is inconsistent with her status as a UN official,” he said. The spokesman added that “this move has nothing to do with the UNFPA whose missions and programs are very much appreciated by my government.” Khartoum suspended activities of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Sudan from February 1, accusing it of violating guidelines for working in the country.

    “(Reuters) – A 16-year-old student wielding two knives went on a stabbing rampage in the hallways of a Pittsburgh-area high school early on Wednesday, injuring 21 people, about half of them seriously, officials said.” (USA)

    If the Sudan can do it so can Sri Lanka. the UNHRC has proved to be a political toy for the US and western nations where human rights are used as a weapon against the selected targeted nation. the same western nations have shielded themselves from a laundry list of massive human rights violations, rendering the UNHRC a farce and a joke that no civilized nation should even entertain within her territory.

    If Sudan can do it so can Sri Lanka. The US ambassador to Sri Lanka you are out of line and soon it will be your turn.

    NAK,

    Unfortunately, Sri Lanka cannot do what Sudan did right now, because the US is the most important market in the world for Sri Lankan exports, and we depend on many high-tech imports from the US.

    To achieve that kind of independence, Sri Lanka must develop a broad market for its exports that is immune to any sanctions that the US can impose. Very few countries in the world can lay claim to such independence from the US.

    Those countries who do have that freedom are either big lenders to the US (eg. US, Saudi Arabia), have a massive trade relationship important to the US (eg. China), have completely independent sources of income (eg. Russia with oil and gas income), or exist completely divorced from the world economy (eg. Somalia).

    Sri Lanka does not fall into any of these four categories … so we have to be patient and bide our time.

    NAK,

    Oops! I meant to say ….”Those countries who do have that freedom are either big lenders to the US (eg. China, Saudi Arabia)”, ….

    Most recently, Crimeans chased away some UN reps came to watch what was happening in Crimea. They were chased out at the boarder by firing guns aimed at the sky.

    Similar things had happened during the Israel attack on Gaza strip when UN observers watching. Even though ISrael air force knew it, they fired missiles at the building killing one or two UN Observers.
