Sudan’s presidential media secretary, Emad Sid Ahmed, said that Carter will meet with the Sudanese president Omer Hassan Al-Bashir, on Tuesday, pointing that meeting agenda would focus on political issues and the situation in South Sudan.

Carter will meet on Wednesday with the national assembly speaker, Al-Fatih Izz Al-Deen, the presidential assistants, Abdel-Rahman Al-Mahdi, and Ibrahim Ghandour, the health minister, Bahar Idris Abu Garda and minister of foreign affairs, Ali Karti.

Sudan’s foreign ministry said the visit is a continuation of previous ones to the country, pointing that it will focus on several issues, including combating Guinea worm disease and Sudan’s 2015 general elections besides sponsoring a dialogue initiative between intellectuals of Sudan and South Sudan.

In 1982, Carter and his wife founded the Carter Center which is a nongovernmental, not-for-profit organisation. In partnership with Emory University, the Carter Center works to advance human rights and alleviate human suffering.

Since 1995, the Carter Center has worked to help reduce cases of Guinea worm disease in Sudan and South Sudan through its Guinea Worm Eradication Program.

The Carter Center organised an observation team with more than 70 observers who monitored the 2010 election process in all 25 states in Sudan.

Last March, the Carter Center launched a series of dialogues between prominent leaders from Sudan and South Sudan, aimed at strengthening peace and creating lasting understanding between the two countries.

      Paul Chadrack,
      Regime change in S Sudan would not be brought by the US, but by S Sudanese themselves, the covert US regime change is now blowing up in its own evil face. And remember, S Sudanese have never been & would never be fond of criminals who think they can goad them around & i don’t think that the US would be any different. The has US abused the S Sudanese trust by covertly....

The Chinese its (US) wants to rob of their infrastructure were not invited by the S Sudanese, but the N Sudan. When president Kiir took all his entire cabinet to Washington in 2011 right after independent to woo investors to S Sudan; what answer did he get hmm (nil)....

          and when N Sudan was stealing S Sudan crude & was illegally encroaching into S Sudan territories & S Sudan reacted by taking Panthou, the US & some evil in the UK barks like mad dogs against S Sudan. And yet this same evils & terrorists empire still believe that S Sudanese would just trust it because it has the name US? Bullshit...the US can shift its evil intrigues all it wants...

            to N Sudan, but S Sudanese would not want any damn US-N Sudan faces or hands in our country & oil. The US can stop its damn aids it claims to be help S Sudan with. But all many ordinary S Sudanese know that, 3/4 of that US so-called aids go back to the same US agents that come with aids’ salaries & so do many of the so-called West donor countries....

              I am not trying to be unappreciative here, but that the US must sometimes man-up & accept that its superiority borders *evil*. This Europeans-US aids games to Africa is a big stain on our peoples’ honesty, but Europeans-US use it to bribed Africans. The Europeans-US real aid name should be called what is---*bribe*...just how much the US has defriended many S Sudanese in a duration of six weeks.

    Right, president Obama sent former president Carter to Khartoum with secret and 2 top hidden agenda:
    1. Lifting Sudan from US terror countries list
    2. Re-unit the south with north again

        1998 and destroyed Al-Shifa factory, cruise missile is very sophisticated weapon and computerized based technology and Sudan wasn’t able to figure it out for a weak how and from where US hit them?!
        They thought have been hit by US jet fighter and even accused Egypt of allowing that jet fighter to use their air-space and attack them!!

        Stop usual your raving nonsenses, S Sudanese opted to leave your clones paradise with 98% percent votes & few S Sudanese still up to date long to have anything to do with your cloned North. You have been the only cloned Arab who still want S Sudan re-unite with the N Sudan, but it will not happen in billion years. The hatred run deep man.

          Mr. Tut (Bol),
          Don’t worry my friend, I can assure you that majority of north people are very unwilling and not interested at all in any kind of unity with the south, if you guys can’t live with yourself in peace and harmony how can you live with others (north as an example)?
          What north will gain from unity other than war,hatred,famine,

            both of you guys (Dinka & Nuer) begging Sudan desperately to intervene with their each one side just like a hooker lady who is making up herself nicely and luring men!
            Majority of Sudanese people are happy that the south is gone otherwise they will pay the high price of this tribal war exactly the same scenario that

              You’re free to bring Ugandan troop to fight on behalf of you and liberate Bor for you since you’re a lady who can’t fight men, idiot Museveni will hire Tutsi from Rwanda and east Congo

                I can reassure you again that north people are so reluctant to unite with you because its disadvantage is much bigger than its advantage, just put in your big belly a summer watermelon my friend "KOT FI BATNAK Al KABERA BATIKHA SAIFY"

    Dividing South Sudan into 3 states based on tribal factor is the only way out!
    I am pretty sure that Sudan will decline US request of having the south reunited with Sudan again because the south is nothing but a big machine for producing problems and troubles and was dragging Sudan backward instead of forward,all Sudan problems including

      corruption and money embezzling were due to South Sudan, I believe no one ever in the north is willing to join that part of the land again and dance with them right in the hell that’s going on in the south now!
      You know, British administration was so confused about what to do with S Sudan before and they had a suggestion to divide it between:Uganda,Kenya and Sudan but

        British administration in Uganda & Kenya immediately declined this proposal and they said they have enough troubles in these countries and S Sudan for sure will fail them if join them because it’s "inhomogeneous" body and can’t be united!
        Ironically, separatists were insisting that if we separated the south from north then both south and north will live in peace!

          what peace? does the south live in peace now? how can you live in peace if you can’t except the other and based every movement on tribalism?!
          For sure Sudan will live in peace without the south, yes, the oil loss will affect Sudan economy but solution is not impossible and is doable!
          It’s very clear now that Dinka cannot accept Nuer and Nuer cannot accept Dinka,

              No other solution other than dividing the south into 3 states based on tribal actuality:
              1. Equatoria state (far south, they’re free to join idiot Museveni)
              2. Dinka state (in the middle they will join no body but themselves only)
              3. Nuer State (far north, they’re free to join Arab/Jalaba)

                I really can’t find any room for Chulluk because they hate them all,my suggestion to them to join Arab/Jalaba in the north because they live in the border and very associated to north!
                Dinka, Nuer and Equatorians will continue to fight forever as if their role in this earth is just to fight each other!
                Equatorians have two faces,today with Dinka and tomorrow with Nuer
