Speaking about SPLM-N, he said that the Sudanese Government will not engage in direct talks with the Northern Sector until it militarily and politically disengages itself from South Sudan.

Speaking about the delay in delivery of humanitarian aid to the needy in the Blue Nile and South Kordofan states, the ambassador said that the Sudan Government is commitment to the memo of understanding signed with the partners on 5th August in Addis Ababa.
