SUDANESE PRESIDENT TO VISIT KUWAIT, QATAR, SOON TO SUPPORT GULF MEDIATION EFFORTS
President Omer al-Bashir of Sudan will visit Kuwait and Qatar in the near future to support mediation efforts to resolve the Gulf crisis, says Foreign Minister Professor Ibrahim Ghandour.
Sudan supports mediation efforts to find a solution to the Gulf crisis, the Foreign Minister said in a media statement at Khartoum airport here Thursday on the return of the President from visits to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia earlier this week.
Asked about the cancellation of the president's visit to Kuwait as part of the tour he ended Thursday, Ghandour said: "The president can visit one country in one visit, or two or three states, or postpone it, and al-Bashir will visit Kuwait and Qatar."
"Not visiting a state during a tour does not mean that it has been ignored", he pointed out, adding that the visits were not to resolve the crisis, but to communicate with the brotherly nations in general, and to discuss bilateral, regional and international files and other issues, he added. "Definitely, the Gulf issue is among these files."
