Hamdok welcomes al-Burhan statement about his meeting with Netanyahu


February 5, 2020 (KHARTOUM) - The Sudanese Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok Wednesday welcomed the statement issued by the chairman of the Transitional Sovereign Council over his meeting with Israel’s Prime Minister.

Al-Burhan on Tuesday issued a statement admitting that he had violated the Constitutional Document when he met with the Israeli premier as the text governing the transition provides that the foreign policy will be determined and conducted by the government.

However, the army general added that he acted in good faith to serve the national security and achieve the higher interests of the Sudanese people.

"We welcome General Burhan’s statement about his meeting with the Prime Minister of Israel," Hamdok said in a series of tweets posted on Wednesday morning.

"The Constitutional Document is the legal framework that defines responsibilities. We must adhere to the roles and powers as it provides," he further stressed.

In the third part of tweets posted in Arabic and English, the Sudanese prime minister recalled that Sudan foreign policy must be conducted by the transitional cabinet.

On Monday, the government spokesman Faisal Mohamed Saleh said that the Council of Ministers was not informed of the meeting.

On Sunday and Monday Hamdok was in Djibouti where is the headquarters of IGAD a regional group that Sudan’s chairs for the first time since its creation.

Hamdok used to repeat that the civil and military components of the transitional authority have been working hand-to-hand in total harmony and dismissed allegations that the army generals take decisions breaching the transitional constitution.

      I appreciate you referring to us as your brothers and sisters. Yes, Sudan is not stable at the moment, but we are optimistic the situation in the north will improve. As a person from Khartoum, I must say we are saddened that we allowed ourselves to be divided as a people.

        We have military dictators 85% of the time since our independence. They continued the colonial policy of divide and conquer while looting our nation. This is why we overthrew them 3 times now.

          During their tenure they restricted media freedom (6th worst in the world) so they can promote their racist propaganda to keep us divided, unaware of the crimes being committed, and complacent with their rule. We are sad that we didn’t stand up to the dictators sooner and that our inaction allowed your oppression.

            We are currently working on establishing a New Sudan that is representative, tolerant, just, and accepting of all citizens. In addition, we are working to rectify the mistakes & failures of the previous regime. That process includes acknowledging & apologizing for the crimes committed while continuing to seek true reconciliation with our family in South Sudan.
