Cairo - Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has said that he believes it will be easier to deal with US President-elect Donald Trump than with other American leaders who "talk" about democracy, human rights and transparency.

In an interview published on Tuesday by the Emirati daily al-Khaleej, president Bashir said Trump is "a forthright person, who focuses on the interests of the American citizen, because he is a businessman, as opposed to those who talk about democracy, human rights and transparency".

Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court for alleged atrocities in Darfur. The court issued an arrest warrant for Bashir in 2009 for crimes against humanity and war crimes, and added genocide to the charges against him in 2010.
