Oct. 25, 2007 (SUNA)
First Vice President of the Republic and President of the Government of Southern Sudan and Chairman of Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM) Salva Kiir Mayardit has instructed the SPLM forces everywhere to be committed to orders and remain quite.
According to leading member of SPLM Yasir Arman, Salva Kiir considered what had happened between the National Congress and SPLM as a political issue that has nothing to do with any military action, a thing which has been totally removed from the agenda of the movement since the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.
Arman said in a press statement after Salva Kiir Mayardit received at his residence Thursday Minister of National Defense Gen. Abdel-Rahim Mohamed Hussein that they are optimistic that the wisdom of the President of the Republic and his first deputy would lead to resolving all outstanding issues in the process of the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement.
Arman expressed pleasure over the meeting and the agreement that resulted from it on activation of all mechanisms, pointing out that the National Congress and SPLM have long experience in resolving issues and that the efforts being exerted by the Presidency can result in good solutions for the interests of Sudan and its people.
Arman affirmed the importance of the meetings between the President of the Republic and his first deputy and the other parties for boosting the peace process in the country.
