At a ceremony organized by the presidency with the participation of current and previous cabinet members, Bashir specifically named South Sudan, Central African Republic and Libya as places where sequence of events is a cause for worry in Khartoum.

Chadian president Idriss Deby is expected to arrive in Khartoum on Monday for discussions on regional developments mentioned by Bashir.

Bashir also said that next year will be a one of peace and moving to providing development and services to citizens in all parts of the country.

He also praised the victories of the Sudanese army in conflict zones.

The Sudanese president declared that all regions of the eastern mountains in South Kordofan state have become free from the insurgency and rebels.

This week the army claimed that it has achieved a series of victories against the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) in South Kordofan state as part of the military campaign announced last month to crush rebellion.

Bashir also addressed the cabinet reshuffle made this month saying it was meant to bring young faces to continue carrying the message ably and consistently.

He said that he will remain in touch outgoing cabinet members to get their views adding that they were engineers of change.

Earlier this month president Bashir announced cabinet shakeup that saw the departure of several long-time NCP figures from their governmental posts including 1st VP Ali Osman Taha, presidential assistant and NCP Vice chairman Nafie Ali Nafie and Oil minister Awad al-Jaz.
