Sudan celebrates first anniversary of revolution

KHARTOUM, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok said Wednesday evening his country started restoring its international status after the success of its revolution.

“The deposed regime sabotaged the country’s foreign relations and plunged the country into feuds with neighbors,” he stressed.

Hamdok made the comments in a speech to a ceremony marking the first anniversary of revolution that started with mass protests on December 19, 2018, and culminated in the ouster of president Omar Al-Bashir’s regime on April 11, 2019.

He noted that Sudan was elected as president of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development and was lifted from the US list of nations violating religious freedoms, which signal the country’s resumption of its international status.

The prime minister expected that the recent move of the United States would lead to dropping the name of Sudan from the US list of State Sponsors of Terrorism soon.

He pledged to do his utmost to ensure peace and security across the country and do justice to the victims of violent acts that took place during the revolution.

Thousands of jubilant Sudanese people took to streets today in Khartoum and other cities to celebrate the anniversary of the revolution.
