SLM leader Abdel Wahid Al-NurFollowing a meeting with Ahmad bin Abdullah Al Mahmoud and Djibril Bassole on Thursday, Abdel Wahid Al-Nur welcomed the ongoing efforts in Doha to ends Darfur conflict and agreed to continue consultations on ways that would allow him to join the process.

The rebel leader during his meeting with the mediation reiterated the need to tackle the security situation and to give free access to the aid groups to provide humanitarian assistance to the affected civilians in the troubled region.

French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner welcomed the move of the rebel leader Al-Nur saying "confirmed his intention to contribute actively to the peace process, personally and through his representatives," in a meeting they held at his office.

Fathi Shila, information secretary of the ruling NCP, in statements to Alray Alaam daily, welcomed the supportive position of the rebel leader saying , We welcome this position, which take in consideration the suffering of civilians in Darfur and realize the seriousness of the government to achieve peace in Darfur before the end of the year.

    All the propaganda made by NCP and its media yesterday, is just hypocracy, and its a part of North Arab culture. When they hate someone they show on media that they love him. It was the same happen with Late Dr.Garang, where they use to tell their kids at home that he is a beast with long teeth that eats children. When SLM/A opened its office in Israel for a months NCP on Sudan National TV continued changing the photos of Abdel Wahid,redenning his eyes prolonging his ears and his teeth then rapped with Israeli flag and wrote on it: This person is out of God mercy he is cursed. I was wondering yesterday to hear on Sudan TV and radio station calling Abdel Wahid brother. Haaa, also I was wondering what happen that God forgave him very quicly like that? Haaaaaaaaaa, funny that Gods orders always comes from Sudan Specially from the North of Sudan

      How is Nur going to lead and manage his movement in exile? A brave leader should always be with his people for the success of the movement.
