The Pan-Arab body stated in its resolution titled “the unjust embargo imposed on Sudan by the US” to the negative impact of the sanctions on the civil aviation security and safety regarding spare parts and purchase or lease of airplanes.

The council also stressed in a separate resolution titled “Supporting peace and development in the Republic of Sudan” its support for the Sudanese government’s stance with regard to the implementation of cooperation agreements signed with South Sudan besides backing Sudan’s negotiating position in resolving border issues including the contested Abyei area.

The council also called upon member states and the international community to meet international pledges to shore up Sudan’s economy and cancel its external debts following secession of South Sudan.

It welcomed the peace accord signed between the Sudanese government and the rebel Justice and Equality Movement/Bashar (JEM-Bashar) on April 6 2013, underscoring the need for non-signatory rebel groups to join the peace process.

The council further called upon Arab states to exert efforts with the United Nations (UN) and the international organizations to ensure that rebel groups don’t get aid and support and convince them to join the peace process.

It praised the role of the Arab League general secretariat and its efforts to address the humanitarian situation in Darfur through the joint mechanism.

The council also called upon member states and the Arab investment and finance funds to activate the resolutions of the extraordinary meeting of the economic and social council which was held in Khartoum on January 20, 2014.

It stressed importance for expanding tasks of the joint mechanism between the government of Sudan and Arab League general secretariat in order to continue its efforts at the humanitarian and developmental levels throughout the country.

The council agreed to include the support for peace and development in Sudan as a permanent item in the agenda of Arab League ministerial council.
