SUDANESE PRESIDENT VISITS SYRIAN CAPITAL DAMASCUS
DAMASCUS, Syria, Sudanese President, Omar al-Bashir, on Sunday arrived in Syria’s capital, Damascus, the first Arab leader to do so, since the Syrian crisis erupted in 2011.
The Sudanese president was received by his Syrian counterpart, Bashar al-Assad, at Damascus International Airport.
Al-Bashir arrived in Damascus for an official working visit.
During their meeting, the two leaders agreed that the crises in many Arab countries require new approaches, based on the respect of the sovereignty and the policy of non-interference in their internal affairs.
The Sudanese president also highlighted his country’s support to Syria, saying, Sudan is ready to provide whatever needed to support the territorial integrity and unity of Syria.
For his part, Assad said, al-Bashir’s visit will give a strong push towards restoring bilateral relations to what they were before the war.
Throughout the Syrian crisis since 2011, most Arab countries have cut or downgraded their diplomatic relations with Syria.
But in recent months, reports emerged that some Arab countries had requested the resumption of their diplomatic relations with Syria.
The fresh nudge in diplomatic relations comes amid a succession of victories of the Syrian army, which enabled the Syrian government to control much of the country.
