June 24, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - Eritrea Monday said supporting power transfer process in Sudan and expressed willingness to boost bilateral relations between the two neighbouring countries.

Osman Saleh, Eritrean Foreign Minister and Presidential Adviser, Yemane Gebreab met Monday with the head of the Transitional Military Council in Khartoum.

The arrival of the Eritrean senior officials comes ten days after a visit of Abdel Fattah al-Burhan head of the Transitional Military Council to Asmara where he met with President Isaias Afewerki on 14 June.

In a statement released in Asmara, the Eritrean information ministry said the delegation handed over a message from President Afewerki expressing "strong expectation to develop the new era of cooperation between the two countries to the highest level".

The two nations seek to repair a relationship strained by accusations of support to rebel groups between the regime of ousted President Ome al-Bashir and the Eritrean government.

The statement said that al-Burhan commended "the solidarity Eritrea is demonstrating in solving the issue in Sudan based on good neighbourliness".

He further expressed Sudan’s readiness to rebuild better relations between the two countries.

The visiting delegation, also, met with the Deputy Chairman of the Transitional Military Council as well as with the head of the Political and Security Committee.

President Isaias expressed support of the Government of Eritrea to the "transitional process" the Sudanese political forces and the Transitional Military Council are conducting, said the Eritrean information ministry

On 5 June, the Eritrean government condemned the African Union Peace and Security Council decisions on Sudan and requested "the AU to refrain from internationalizing and exacerbating the situation in Sudan".

"The AU’s posturing on the events unfolding in Sudan is a recent and vivid illustration of this deplorable state of affairs," Asmara further stressed.

    People of Eriterea, watchout fellows your country is next on list of destabilization. The scramble for Africa ’part two or 2.0’ by the European and their American attack dog was to be started from your country through North Sudan and Egypt, throughout the Sahel countries and to interior countries like here in South Sudan, DR Congo, Central Africa republic (CAR and other countries the US and the European countries considered their former colonies>>>

      The so-called Arab Spring in 2011 was part of neo-colonialism by the European, their US attack dog and their gulf Arab states financiers. Saudi Arabia managed to ’buy off’ their frustrated young people with their massive oil money and they kept quiet. Saudi Arabia Arab Spring was not going to succeed anyway since Saudi Arabia and other gulf Arab states are considered the western Europe and their US attack dog lifelines of their economies survival>>>

        And their Arab Spring succeeded in Magreb countries of Libya, Tunisia and Algeria early this early this year. They also succeeded in Egypt, but Egyptians tasted the ’water with their Muslim brotherhood’ party. But immediately ’recoiled back’ to their strongman, Mr. Abdel El Sisi, the Egyptians have never known any different anyway. The Europeans and their US attack dog ’regime change’ business also succeeded in former French colonies of West and Central Africa of Ivory Coast and Central Africa republic (CAR) and replaced those countries president with their puppets/stooges>>>
