NAIROBI, Sept. 26 — Leader of Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) and head of the movement’s delegation in the current session of peace negotiations in Naivasha, Kenya, Col John Garang has directed an address to the Sudanese people on the occasion of initialling the agreement on military and security arrangements.

He said that what has been achieved represented a great and serious step toward realization of peace in Sudan.

He went on to say that what remains of issues affirms that we are on the way to decrease the volume of differences.

He appreciated President Al-Bashir’s telephone call with him last night in Naivasha, when he congratulated him on the agreement which was achieved on the security and military arrangements.

He said President Al-Bashir’s congratulation to him was a congratulation to all the Sudanese people, both southerners and northerners alike, and reflected the deeply-rooted ties between them.

He stressed that President Al-Bashir’s congratulation to him emphasized the confidence between the northerners and southerners, and that peace agreement will be implemented in a proper way, and that any obstacles can be removed through the mutual understanding at all leadership levels.

Addressing the Sudanese people, Garang said "I want to be among you in my house in Haj-Yusuf [Estate in Khartoum] and deal with the carpenter, the grocer and my neighbours at the area."

Garang promised the Sudanese people that all the people will be involved in power, including all the other political forces.
