First Vice President Ali Osman Mohamed Taha has underlined the importance of coordination between the recommendations of Kadugli consultative forum on peace and the efforts being exerted by the delegation for negotiation on the two areas, South Kordofan and Blue Nile.
Taha, who received yesterday the recommendations of Kadugli forum, described attempts by the extremist communist group to foil Kadugli forum as desperate. The people of Kordofan are aware about the interest of the country and the region, he said. The recommendations of the forum confirm that the people are up to the challenges, he added.
The First Vice President reiterated state's commitment to carry out President's pledges to achieve security and stability in the region. He praised the participation of leading figures and political parties in the forum which had positive bearing on the recommendations.
Meanwhile, Interior Minister Ibrahim Mahmoud Hamid affirmed stability of security situation across the country. The Minister met with the FVP yesterday to brief him on the security situation and the measures needed to put the cooperation agreement into practice.
Security and humanitarian situation in the country particularly in South Kordofan is stable, the Minister said. The meeting with the FVP focused on a range of issues including opening of border crossings with South Sudan, he added.
