The Sudanese leadership, represented by the President of the Sovereign Council, 1st Lt. Gen. Abdul Fattah Al-Burhan and PM Dr. Abdallah Hamadok, are intending to address the International Partners and Donors conference which will take place in Paris next May.
According to the Sudanese Minister of Investment and International Cooperation, Al-Hadi Mohammed Ibrahim, the conference will last for two days, the first of which is for Sudan and the second for the rest of the African states.
He pointed out that the government, in all its levels, is exerting all efforts to be well prepared for that conference.
Last Sunday, the President of the Sovereign Council emphasized the importance of achieving peace, adding during the ceremony of signing the Declaration of Principles between the Government and SPLM-N (Al-Hilu) that they will fight to achieve and protect peace.
He affirmed that the signature of the Declaration of Principles represents a real start towards the aspired change which will reshape our nation.
The above good news, added to the commencement of implementing the peace agreement, activating the partnership with the IMF, and diplomatic/political openness towards the international community, are but healthy indicators that Sudan – at last – is recovering and has started taking its leading position in the African continent and the world.
It is true that there are enormous problems, most of which are in the economy, but it is apparent that Sudan is heading towards a bright future in achieving real democracy.
It is high time for the international community to encourage the democratic transformation in Sudan through providing logistic and political support to keep it off the axes policies, which usually considers its interests first and overstep the actual interests of Sudan.
It goes without saying that the democratic transformation process has constants which support it, on top of which are the comprehensive peace, social peace, and stable economy, without which we cannot achieve the aspired democracy.
