On Sunday, Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi warned that the partition of Sudan would be a “contagious disease” that could spread to other African countries.
He said at the opening of an Arab-Africa summit in Sirte, Libya. “What is happening in Sudan could become a contagious disease that affects the whole of Africa,”
“We must recognise that this event is dangerous,” he said indicating to the January ninth referendum on southern Sudan independence which could see Africa’s biggest country divide in two.
Libyan leader told the gathering, which is also being attended by Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir that “The partition of Sudan is likely to change the map of the country. But other (African countries) will change too,”
