February 11, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres met with Sudan’s president on the sidelines of the African Union summit in Addis Ababa, said Foreign Minister El-Dirdeiry Ahmed in a statement released on Monday.

The meeting of al-Bashir with Guterres was reported by the official news agency SUNA saying it took place at the Sheraton Hotel in Addis Ababa on the sidelines of the 32nd Ordinary Summit of the African Union.

The UN deputy spokesperson did not mention it in his daily briefing. Farhan Haq just pointed to Guterres participation in the African summit and his speech about bilateral relation between the two organisations.

According to SUNA, the meeting discussed Sudan’s initiatives to achieve peace and stability in South Sudan and the Central African Republics.

"The Secretary-General of the United Nations considered (these initiatives) a shining point in Africa and an exceptional effort that deserved commendation and appreciation".

Speaking to the official agency, Dirdeiry said Guterres reiterated the support of the United Nations for the Sudanese efforts and pledged to support the implementation process of an agreement for peace and reconciliation in the CAR negotiated in Khartoum recently.

Also, the UN chief assured that they will exert their efforts to secure the necessary support for the implementation of the peace agreement in South Sudan.

This is the second meeting between al-Bashir and Guterres on the sidelines of the African Union meetings. They met for the first time on 28 January 2018.

At the time, Haq told reporters that operational necessities allow the UN chief to meet with the ICC-wanted president "from time to time" on issues such as the joint peacekeeping mission in Darfur (UNAMID) and the UN peacekeeping mission in the disputed Abyei region (UNISFA).

Al-Bashir is accused by the International Criminal Court of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur.

    "UN chief met Mr. Omar Hassan El Bashir"! There we go! Mr. Guteres is a honest guy though. When Mr. Barack Hussein Obama, the European and corporate America emperor can to Africa in 2015 to Kenya and Abesh (so-called ethiopia), the idiot came and selected his own African leaders of Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Somalia, Djibouti, foreign minister of North Sudan, minus El Bashir because the European or the so-called West emporer didn’t want to be seen with a murderer?!!. The Western World emporer went and lectured his chosen African fools about South Sudan’s conflict without South Sudanese leaders? Can you fellows see? I for one, abhore Mr. Omar El Bashir just as l abhore anything that is connected evil white Americans>>>

        Was it not the same Omar Hassan El Bashir who called our mighty SPLA over ran Panthou (Heglig) in 2012 "insects"? And Here, our foolish so-called PhD doctors of Mr. Riek Machar, Lam Akol and their other losers are right back in Khartoum and they hope they would be welcomed back to their old positions as always. And that they have forgiven themselves with Mr. Salva Kiir and his henchmen and so, they will likewise come and be forgiven by the South Sudanese people the the losers have betrayed a number of times. Good luck to the foreign puppets this time around>>>

          The criminals believe in magic and fantasies would come and protect them if their magic is such power than the level of HATRED and revenge the evils have spawn in our country and a mong our people. And the evils are going to test the bitter pills of their treason with their UN, their NGOs, their evil white Americans, English people, their evil juus (so-called Israelis), their gulf Arab states financiers and some of their sycophants countries even here in our own region>>>

            The traitors, theieves and losers have always been informed that their evils in the US, the UK, UN, NGOs, their evil juus (so-called israelis), their gulf Arab states financiers and some of their creepy allies in between don’t give a damn about foolish Nuers, Dinkas/Monyjiengs or Barias, they are just after our resources, land, our Nile waters and of course fight the present of Chinese companies out of our country by proxy. But this is unlikely to happen under the sun on our watch, the evils have resorted to what they do, best; to chess game or football play around with our country and our people just like the evils did with their then East and West Germany during their then so-called COLD WAR and the evils hope that they can reunite our country and people with their cloned so-called arab North Sudan!!!>>>

              Fools, that is going to happen under the sun even in million years. Fools, the evils are going to bomb to near extinction. South Sudan is part of their damned so-called ANGLO-AMERICA empire, never has and will never ever will. Reasons, pure HATRED and RACISM. That the evil juus (so-called Israel) or UN NEW WORLD ORDER government EXPERIMENT would be started HERE in SOUTH SUDAN. And this evil juus (so-called israelis) UN NEW WORLD ORDER government would have it seat of government in JERUSALEM and to Euphrates rivers, Tigris rivers and right up to our Nilotic valleys and plain their EVIL and FAKE Messianic DEVIL empire would span this regions>>>

                And that this evil evil (so-called israelis) empire would be financed by their gulf Arab state allies, rich evil juus (so-called israelis) bankers in Europe, Wall street or Americans, some rich Indians, Chinese, Africans or any other rich thief around the world who squirrel away his/her loot in shady countries like Kenya, Abesh (so-called ethiopia), South Africa, UAE, London, Virgin Island, Bahamas, Panama et al and all these cheap and dirty intrigues fellows are about to stem the immigration of West Africans, Darfurs, North Sudanese, Libyans, Egyptians>>>

                  South Sudanese people, Eritereans, Abeshas (so-called ethipians), Somalians or other Africans from going to Saudi Arabia, gulf Arab states, evil juus (so-called Israel) or Europe to and cause problems to countries high societies. Here in South Sudan, no one has crossed Libya to Italy. But South Sudan and South Sudanese are love by rubbish on face of earth. Many Africans crossed the Mediterranean sea to Italy and lie through their teeth that they are South Sudanese people>>>

                    Fellows, a lot South Sudanese refugees have been resettled in the US, Canada, Scandinavian countries, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and other countries. And l think they were picked up in refugee camps. Those South Sudanese are citizens of those countries l just mentioned above and those are the ones, the evils in the US, the UK, their UN, their sleazy NGOs, their evil juus (so-called israelis) and some of their creepy allies in between often use as their blackmails or bargaining chips over our country and our people to crawl themselves into our country>>>
