Open in new windowThe government reiterated its determination to bring an end to the insurgency in 2013 and to further beef up the Sudan armed forces (SAF) and other organized forces to confront all forms of conspiracies against the country. The Presidential Assistant Nafie Ali Nafie said the government will take necessary measures for decisive action against the unruly elements and the conspirators. Addressing an annual ceremony organized by the Popular Defence Forces (PDF), Nafie said the agreement reached by the opposition and the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF) on what they termed as "new dawn charter" to overthrow the government will be a false dawn and will also be a graveyard for the opposition. He lambasted the charter of the opposition forces and the SRF in which they claimed they will overthrow the government this year. He affirmed that the year 2013 will witness the extermination of traitors and outlaws. He said the government will seek to expose the agents who have entered into an alliance with the West against the country’s interests. He warned that it will be a long and decisive battle.
Meanwhile, the PDF general coordinator Abdullah Al-Jaili said those who have signed the document should be held accountable so that the Sudanese army and other organized forces are not stabbed on the back. He declared the combat readiness of the PDF to defend the motherland.
