OIC Participates in Closing Session of Sudanese National Dialogue

Jeddah, – General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) participated in the closing session of the national dialogue, which was held in Khartoum, on Monday 10 October 2016.

In his speech to the meeting, Assistant Secretary General for Political Affairs Ambassador Abdullah Alim reiterated the OIC’s full support to the results of this inter-Sudanese dialogue, which constitutes a strong message to the world of the ability of Sudanese people to reach consensual solutions by themselves internally, without foreign tutelage or interference that comes with agendas, which may aggravate the differences among the people of Sudan and prolong the conflict.

Commending the courageous and responsible positions of the parties that have declared their commitment to the national dialogue, Ambassador Alim renewed the OIC’s invitation to the parties that have not yet participated, and those who still bear arms, to shoulder their historical responsibilities toward the people of Sudan. Through the spirit of sacrifice and reconciliation in this critical juncture of the history of Sudan they can make the best out of this opportunity to achieve peace in Sudan by joining the national consensus as the only option to resolve all national issues. This would allow all the citizens to contribute to the peace, stability, reconstruction and development, prosperity and progress of the country.

Ambassador Alim stressed the OIC’s commitment to harness all its capabilities to support constructive dialogue among the people of Sudan to promote peace and stability in this OIC founding member, in realization of the principle of Islamic solidarity.
