The head of the National Umma Party, Imam Al-Sadig Al-Mahdi, condemned and denounced Israelâ€™s attack on the Yarmouk munitions plant in Sudan, saying the party is against any violation of the country's sovereignty. He added, "Defending the country's sovereignty is an undisputed principle."
In a press conference he held at the party's headquarters yesterday, he affirmed that this era requires unity in the face of brazen violence.
Al-Mahdi added, "Whoever plans and executes a coup will have necessarily taken away the choice of the people to decide their governor."
He went on to say, "Opposition parties are not qualified to rule the country in the next decade because they lack joint strategic vision, and the current regime is in no way near collapsing."
Regarding South Sudan, he said, "A strategic partnership must be made between Sudan and South Sudan to realise each other's interests. The two countries must realize this is the only way forward, because otherwise both countries will continue to threaten each otherâ€™s national security."
