Hamdok welcomes al-Burhan statement about his meeting with Netanyahu


February 5, 2020 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudanese Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok Wednesday welcomed the statement issued by the chairman of the Transitional Sovereign Council over his meeting with Israel’s Prime Minister.

Al-Burhan on Tuesday issued a statement admitting that he had violated the Constitutional Document when he met with the Israeli premier as the text governing the transition provides that the foreign policy will be determined and conducted by the government.

However, the army general added that he acted in good faith to serve the national security and achieve the higher interests of the Sudanese people.

"We welcome General Burhan’s statement about his meeting with the Prime Minister of Israel," Hamdok said in a series of tweets posted on Wednesday morning.

"The Constitutional Document is the legal framework that defines responsibilities. We must adhere to the roles and powers as it provides," he further stressed.

In the third part of tweets posted in Arabic and English, the Sudanese prime minister recalled that Sudan foreign policy must be conducted by the transitional cabinet.

On Monday, the government spokesman Faisal Mohamed Saleh said that the Council of Ministers was not informed of the meeting.

On Sunday and Monday Hamdok was in Djibouti where is the headquarters of IGAD a regional group that Sudan’s chairs for the first time since its creation.

Hamdok used to repeat that the civil and military components of the transitional authority have been working hand-to-hand in total harmony and dismissed allegations that the army generals take decisions breaching the transitional constitution.

    Our brothers and sisters from Northern Sudan are not one page. Basically, after break away of South Sudan perhaps, the future of Northern Sudanese people is absolutely unpredictable and on top of that, the people are so confused even the Official in government aren’t sure what future will look like. Friends of mine are saying, they will soon asking South Sudanese people to accept their apologies

      I appreciate you referring to us as your brothers and sisters. Yes, Sudan is not stable at the moment, but we are optimistic the situation in the north will improve. As a person from Khartoum, I must say we are saddened that we allowed ourselves to be divided as a people.

        We have military dictators 85% of the time since our independence. They continued the colonial policy of divide and conquer while looting our nation. This is why we overthrew them 3 times now.

          During their tenure they restricted media freedom (6th worst in the world) so they can promote their racist propaganda to keep us divided, unaware of the crimes being committed, and complacent with their rule. We are sad that we didn’t stand up to the dictators sooner and that our inaction allowed your oppression.

            We are currently working on establishing a New Sudan that is representative, tolerant, just, and accepting of all citizens. In addition, we are working to rectify the mistakes & failures of the previous regime. That process includes acknowledging & apologizing for the crimes committed while continuing to seek true reconciliation with our family in South Sudan.

              The kind of brains we have here in South Sudan is what let our country and our people be bullied by our ’enemies all along’. A foolish Dinka/Jieng boy or a girl would think, he/she is a God chosen person. Have you seen how the so-called ’geopolitical clock’ was move to *a few seconds to mid night* by *former Irish Prime minister and former UNSC council head, a South Korean*>>>

              • 6 February 09:56, by Langbaar

                piece of trash, Mr. Ban Ki Moon?* Mr. Mayendit brother. South Sudanese who know these cheap and dirty intrigues are here chap. Let any fool bring an white Americans, English people, their evil juus (so-called israelis), cloned Arabs of North Sudan, Bantuses, their Abeshas (so-called ethiopian) prostitutes, their UN and NGOs and some of their creeps into our country and our lives again>>>>

                • 6 February 10:02, by Langbaar

                  and that South Sudanese would be as good as dead. There will be be no these vermin in our country and over our people never ever again. Irish are not equal with the Dinkas/Muonyjiengs of the Sudan. For those South Sudanese who know *Irish republic and Northern Island*. Irish republic is ’an independence country’>>>>

                  • 6 February 10:11, by Langbaar

                    I will tell them to read this book if they can damned understand it, ’Ulysses’ by James Joyce. Written in English, but in ’first language’. Even Irish people sometimes struggle to understand their own boy writing. But they know their game better lowly informed South Sudanese fools.>>>>

                  • 6 February 10:12, by Fathi

                    Lmaoo ...Langbaar,
