President Omar al-Bashir said that the initiators of mass unrest swept Sudan in the past few weeks, receive financial support from abroad. He said this on January 3 in Khartoum during a speech on the occasion of the 63rd anniversary of the independence of the east African state.
According to al-Bashir, the organizers of anti-government demonstrations “receive funding from abroad, and the guide to action is from the embassies of some foreign countries represented in Khartoum,” reported Al-Mayadin TV channel.
“But the Sudanese will not sell their independence for dollars,” the Sudanese leader underlined.
“Our country has been in a state of economic war for 21 years already, since the introduction of international sanctions against it,” said Al-Bashir, commenting on the difficult economic situation in Sudan. However, a way out of the crisis, he said, must be resolved within the country.
“Overcoming it will not work in one day or one night, but we know how to find a way out of the current difficult situation,” al-Bashir explained and promised “at the end of the month to start implementing the program to raise salaries in the country to the required level and support most vulnerable people. “
