Sudanese President: Former Libyan Regime Biggest Enemy
Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir said Friday that the former Libyan regime was the biggest enemy for Sudan and that it severely harmed the Sudanese people.
"The Libyan people have presented the greatest gift for the Sudanese people that is liberating Libya from (former leader Muammar) Gaddafi and his regime," said al-Bashir when addressing the closing session of the general conference of the ruling National Congress Party (NCP) in the presence of Chairman of Libya 's National Transitional Council (NTC) Mustafa Abdul-Jalil here.
"The biggest harm inflicted on Sudan was by Gaddafi's regime. It was bigger than any harm caused by any of the colonialist countries hostile to Sudan," added al-Bashir.
Jalil, for his part, said that Sudan was a real partner for the Libyan revolution with its military, political and humanitarian support.
Jalil further vowed to establish distinguished ties with Sudan in all fields, and said that "Sudan and Libya share joint borders and there will be a high-level security cooperation."
The head of the Libyan NTC arrived in Khartoum on Friday for a two-day visit, during which he is to hold talks with al-Bashir and the Sudanese First Vice-President Ali Osman Mohamed Taha.
