Sudan able to foil attempt to politically isolate it from Africa: president


14:34, December 01, 2011

KHARTOUM, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on Wednesday accused some international trends of attempting to politically isolate Sudan from its African surrounding.

"Sudan has been subject to unjustified pressures because of its independent options and its rejection of foreign interventions and politicization of justice," said al-Bashir when addressing the 34th conference of African Parliamentary Union (APU) in Khartoum.

"An economic siege has been imposed on Sudan and presently attempts are ongoing by external trends to politically isolate Sudan from its African surrounding," he added.

He reiterated Sudan's ability to face foreign plots, saying that "due to Sudan's adherence to its stances and with the support of the peace loving peoples in Africa we have managed to break the siege and abort the isolation plot."

Al-Bashir called on the African countries to prevent foreign intervention in the African affair, saying that "the (African) countries must live up to their responsibility in resolving the African conflicts and block the way before foreign interventions which further complicate our issues."

The 34th APU conference is discussing two main issues relating to the role of parliamentary institutions in enhancing solidarity among the African countries to boost security and stability and involvement of the people, particularly the youth, to reduce poverty, end exclusion and enhance justice.
