KHARTOUM, Dec 21 (NNN-SUNA) — Sudanese President Omer al-Bashir says Sudan and Rwanda face the same challenges and entertain the same aspirations, with the same political will and resources to could help them achieve development, attract investment and bring prosperity to their people.

He stressed during the joint session of bilateral talks held at the start of the visit by Rwandan President Paul Kagame to Khartoum that Sudan was determined to continue its efforts to boost relations with Rwanda at all levels and to seek ways to strengthen trade exchanges, and technical and technological co-operation between the two countries.

He added that Sudan was also working on putting in place projects which will achieve the aspirations of the two countries and spur further bilateral co-operation and co-ordination in all areas of mutual interest.

Both countries, he noted, shared the view that joint African action should be encouraged to boost peace and stability on the continent. He said it was also imperative to effect reform within the African Union (AU) institutions and stressed that Sudan backed the sincere efforts by Rwanda to reform the AU institutions.

He said all African peoples aspired to see a strong and effective African Union and to see the continent develop and progress and enjoy strong political will to manage its own affairs with its own resources and through the efforts of its sincere leaders.

President Kagame arrived here earlier Wednesday for a two-day State visit to Sudan at the head of a high-level delegation, whose members included his foreign affairs and defence ministers and armed forces chief.
