Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir, wanted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court, has been invited to a summit in Saudi Arabia that will be attended by US President Donald Trump, reports by the AFP news agency and the New York Times.
AFP is quoting an unnamed Saudi official while the New York Times quotes an anonymous Sudanese spokesperson.
It is not clear if he will accept the invitation.
Mr Trump is due to arrive in Saudi Arabia on Saturday at the start of his first foreign trip.
The Sudanese president is wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes relating to the Darfur conflict. He denied the charges.
The US is not a signatory to the court but has supported its work.
