Sudanese President welcomes national dialogue counsel

Sudanese President welcomes national dialogue counsel


Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on Monday pledged to implement the recommendations of a national dialogue currently underway in Khartoum.

Bashir said the recommendations of the political and societal dialogue conference have offered solutions for the country’s problems, accusing external opposition of being funded by America and Israel.

“The recommendations made by the committees of national and community dialogue, which approaches its end, have solutions for all the problems of the country and leave no chance for mercenaries funded by American and Israeli intelligence,” said Bashir.

“We say to the mercenaries who are stayin in hotels abroad, being funded by the American and Israeli intelligence and all those staying in the hotels of Washington, Paris and Tel Aviv, the Sudanese people no longer care about you,” he said.

Bashir added that the national dialogue is not as a result of weakness nor a response to the pressures or dictations, but a political program based on the firm belief of solving the country’s problems.

Some significant political parties, such as the National Umma Party, the Reform Now Movement and the Just Peace Forum, that approved the process in the beginning. But later they suspended their participation, criticizing the government refusal to postpone the general elections and the lack of political freedoms.
