The newly established state of East Darfur was the scene of fierce fighting between rebel groups and government forces. On 17 April; the army retook Muhajeria and Labado from a faction of the rebel Sudan Liberation Movement led by Minni Minnawi.

The official news agency SUNA said Al Bashir reaffirmed his support to the institutions of the new state with all the necessary means in order to enable it to fully assume its duties.

Speaking to the press following the meeting; Kasha said they discussed the security situation and added that Bashir pledged to provide East Darfur state with the needed financial support.

He further said that the president suggested some ideas and measures to be implemented in East Darfur to enhance the security situation there, and demanded the state government to build local infrastructures and to achieve tribal reconciliations.

Kasha had initially declined, in January 2012, the position of East Darfur governor arguing that the national government would not give him the means to construct ministries and public establishments

Established on 10 January 2012 in line with the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD), the East Darfur state is the homeland of Rizaigat tribal groups who clashed with Beni Hussein last March.

    First of all, Problems of old Sudan were created by racism attitudes of the so-called Arab from Shendi to Wad Medani through Khartoum and will never be resolved by creating a state to each tribe. Secondly, Fugitive Bashir and his thugs have and will never provide development support to Darfur, S. Kordofan and S. Blue Nile, but are only supplying the machinery of war to kill more innocent children.
