President Yoweri Museveni has today met with the ruling Sudan Transitional Military Council led by Gen. Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan at Mbale State Lodge in eastern Uganda.
According to Senior Presidential Press Secretary, Don Wanyama, the group briefed the President on the situation in Sudan.
They also asked for Uganda’s support as they steer the country back to normalcy.
“They gave me a very good briefing of the situation in Sudan and we discussed our possible collaboration towards restoration of peace and prosperity in the country. It is a cause we shall support,” Museveni said in turn.
He said the type of conflict and agitation that has been experienced in the Sudan is dangerous because it scares away business and affects the livelihood of the people.
“In Uganda, we experienced this and we lost a lot of development time. The best way, therefore, is to agree and move in a democratic way.”
He added: “I am happy to hear that Sudan is moving in this direction and we wish the very best to this government in charge of the transition.”
