Sudan will take part in the African Union (AU) Summit of Heads of State and Government to be held on July 3 and 4 at the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa, says the State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Atta Al-Mannan Bakhit.
He told SUNA that the summit would discuss the effects of the situation in South Sudan, which he described as very worrying, as well as the escalating situation in Libya, in addition to a number of issues in the region and the economic situation in Africa.
Ambassador Bakhit revealed that Sudan was on the verge of reaching a final plan on the withdrawal of international forces from the western Sudanese region of Darfur. "A gradual withdrawal is to begin now, a matter that confirms the return of security and stability to Darfur," he added.
Ambassador Bakhit also referred to the role and participation of Sudan in various international summits and forums.
