“The message explained the positive developments, which have taken place after the last summit between President Bashir and Salva Kiir of South Sudan, and the agreements which have been reached between the two Presidents regarding the outstanding issues and the pending issues between the two countries,” Yousif told reporters.

According to him, he briefed President Jammeh about the positive developments, and Sudan’s readiness to honour all its commitments in the agreement.

“Moreover, President Yahya Jammeh explained the position of Gambia as regards support of Sudan in regional and international organizations,” he stated.
