NAIROBI - Kenya's foreign minister traveled on Thursday to Sudan for talks to defuse a diplomatic row touched off by a court ruling ordering the arrest of Sudanese President Omar Bashir for suspected genocide if he set foot in Kenya again.

Sudan ordered Kenya's ambassador to leave Khartoum and pulled its own envoy out of Nairobi after a Kenyan judge told the Nairobi government to detain Bashir if possible and hand him over to the International Criminal Court in The Hague to comply with an ICC genocide warrant.

Since Monday's ruling, Kenya has tried to ease the spat with Sudan by saying it would appeal against the court's decision. Khartoum has also voiced openness to a diplomatic resolution and has yet to enforce the Kenyan ambassador's expulsion.
