Sudan’s spy chief in Qatar with a message from Bashir

The message was delivered by the director of Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) Mohamed Atta Al-Mawla Abbas who met with the Qatari leader at his office in Doha.

The contents of the letter were not revealed except to say that it pertained to bilateral ties and ways of developing and enhancing them.

Abbas also briefed the Qatari Emir on the situation in Sudan and efforts exerted by Khartoum in different areas to achieve stability, security and development.

Al-Thani on his end reaffirmed his country’s support to Sudan and personal attention he gives to developments occurring in the East African nation expressing Qatar’s continuous willingness to back Khartoum’s efforts.

Video footage from Qatar’s state TV showed Sudan’s spy chief being accompanied by two unidentified officials which did not include the Sudanese ambassador in Doha.

In the past messages from Bashir to the Qatari Emir were typically conveyed by Bashir’s advisers, foreign minister or parliamentary speaker. Dispatching the NISS chief may indicate the sensitive nature of the letter.

Qatar has been one of the few countries where Sudan enjoys relatively warm relations with. For years the rich Arab Gulf state has hosted peace talks between the Sudanese government and Darfur rebel groups which eventually resulted in signing of a peace accord in 2011.

Furthermore, Qatar also pledged $2 billion in the form of investments and purchases of government bonds to help its beleaguered economy reeling from the impact of losing the oil-rich south last year.

It was also revealed that Bashir underwent a throat surgery in Doha last August for later turned out to be a benign tumor according to the president’s brother.

      LOOOOOOL!!! I can’t help laughing on your wordings.... Khartoum seems going down fast than they had imagined. Currently i believe a $1=8SDG, a three fold increased from last year when South Sudan walked a way and later shutdown its oil pipelines. They say those who live in glass house shouldn’t start throwing stones.....

        With all the mockeries we made about Sudan, now the Prince will actually feel sorry for Sudan that he is going to give them money and that’s going to be a good thing. We feel sorry as well for the innocents Sudanese and not the killers. We should not paint everybody with a wide brush but we don’t believe the innocents will get the money either.

      Begging for money, what can we expect from Khartoum, Sudan is on the brink of collapse economically. Poor country like Sudan must beg to live. Well, this kind of way will not continue for more than 10 years. Poor, poor and poor.

    I don’t think Bashir worry very much about his potential death but he is very worry about the hell fire awaiting him from all the innocents people that he killed and the way he will be confronted by all the people he kill before he go into hell fire.

    Oil money can make the insignicant nations everybody’s uncle! Qatar often hired the West most evil mercenaries to terrorise other nations & now their West cabals have even adopted its propaganda network, the Aljazeera TV & these clowns think everyone is their fool! If it is clever enough, it is better to keep its evil agenda to itself & her UK evil friend, no one wants their slick terrorism.

      Our govt must take extra vigilant to keep an eye of these evil nations activities. Because these evils think they can terrorise themselves in to be wanted. They are not wanted & they will never be wanted with their devilic exports whatsoever. Their riches aren’t everybody’s taste. It will not surprise anyone if the upheavals in Jonglei & Western Bhar el gazeles weren’t these evil nations evokings!

      The current ruler of Qatar was reportedly put into power with the help of the British MI6. Al-Jazeera has long been a British MI6 propaganda machine In typical fashion, they established themselves as a contrarian viewpoint to mainstream news but quickly became pro ’Muslim Brotherhood’. Al Jazeera is a sophisticated multi-dimensional system of dis-info designed to manipulate public opinion by setting up a a false paradigm dialectical battle. Al-Jazeera has recruited a number of former BBC journalists believed to have strong connections to the British MI6.

    Where are our Sudanese opposition friends to tell us their point of view? We can’t wait to hear from them! What was the true intention of the memo to Qatari Prince? We know our Sudanese friends, they always tell the truth! The joke here is neither deliberate nor unintentionally delivered.

      Sudan Govt. remains manipulative so long the opposition is weak, disorganized and power hungry to the core. Bashir’s survival comes from NCP/NIF Islamic agenda’s soft display. Small countries like Qatar have their interests pegged on their investment empire and spread of security, economic and political multi-lateral tentacles. That is a pan-Islamic or Arab plan in nature. RSS needs to watch out!
