Important statement fromthe Vice President of the Sudanese Sovereign Council Malik agar

This morning, I met with Mr. Ezzedine El-Tayeb, Chairman of the Sudanese Council of Churches, he gave a briefing on four issues, namely the challenges facing the Sudanese churches, such as the Evangelical Church in Bahri and Omdurman, in addition to the Coptic and Episcopal Church, and other churches in the outskirts of Khartoum State and the extent of the damage to their headquarters by the rebel Rapid Support Forces. These violations affected the headquarter of the Council of Churches in Al-Amarat neighborhood in Khartoum, which was completely destroyed by the rebel Rapid Support militia forces.

Mr. Ezz El-Din, Chairman of the Council of Churches, pointed out to the importance of activating the role of the Council, which will help in providing community support to the Christian and church community in particular and for all the Sudanese people.
He also discussed the role and importance of the partnership between the Council of Churches and government institutions and ways to strengthen the role of the Council of Churches so that it can contribute to helping the Sudanese without discrimination on the basis of religion.

His briefing also included a request to provide a headquarters for the council and to assist some of the priests who wish to receive treatment in the sister Arab Republic of Egypt. He concluded his speech by requesting that an expanded meeting be held that includes church leaders, bishops and leaders of Sudanese Christian denominations.

I assured him that the state stands at an equal distance between religions, and that the assault on churches and Christians did not begin with the rebel rapid support forces, and that there is a rich history that was inherited from previous eras, and that I will personally undertake, with my colleagues in the leadership of the state, the issue of equality between religions and ensure the involvement of the church community in National issues. I praised him for their role and solid stance on Christian issues and Sudanese issues in general, and that I would hold a meeting with the leaders of the Council of Churches, as well as the Minister of Endowments and Religious Affairs, to take decisions that strengthen the role of the Council and preserve the rights of Christians.

May God protect Sudan and the people of Sudan
