Sudan favours dialogue to end conflict in South Sudan

Khartoum, Jan 6 (IANS) Sudan Monday reiterated its support for neighbour South Sudan’s stability and resolution of the armed conflict there through dialogue, noting that war would lead to uncalculated consequences.

“Sudan has declared a clear stance with its support to the stability in South Sudan and resolution to the issue between the rivals through dialogue,” Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Karti told reporters upon return of his country’s President Omar al-Bashir from South Sudan after a day-long visit.
“President al-Bashir conveyed to his counterpart Salva Kiir a clear message that the war must end through dialogue, and that fighting could drag the South to unsafe consequences,” the minister added.
