Khartoum — Sudan's Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok has stressed that the peace negotiation process must be accompanied by a comprehensive vision that excludes no person or region in Sudan "so that we can reach strategic solutions in the long run".
The Deputy Chairman of the Sovereign Council, Lt Gen Mohamed Hamdan 'Hemeti' has met with the Norwegian Special Envoy to Sudan and South Sudan, Endre Stiansen, who is in Khartoum to prepare for Friends of Sudan meeting on 11th Dec.
At its last meeting in Washington last month, the Friends of Sudan expressed strong support for Sudan's civilian-led transitional government's plan to reform Sudan's economy and address the aspirations of the Sudanese people.
Hemeti and Stiansen discussed the ongoing efforts and the status of negotiations between the government and the armed movements to achieve peace in the country.
