KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Sudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir said Monday he had ordered that all international aid groups should stop distributing aid inside Sudan within a year.
"We have ordered the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs to completely Sudanise the voluntary work in Sudan within one year and after that no international organizations will distribute relief to Sudanese citizens," Bashir told a rally of armed forces.
"They (the international organizations) can just leave their food aid at the airport and Sudanese NGOs can distribute the relief."
Sudan ordered the expulsion of 16 non-governmental organizations after a Hague court issued a war crimes warrant for Bashir.
