Qatar congratulates Sudan on formation of new government

By QLNews

The State of Qatar has congratulated the Republic of the Sudan and the Sudanese people on the formation of the new government, headed by Dr Abdullah Hamdok.

Qatar has termed the formation of the new government as an important step toward achieving the aspirations of the brotherly Sudanese people for freedom, peace, and justice and building the state of institutions and law.

In a statement yesterday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed Qatar's immense pleasure that the Sudanese parties pursue a spirit of dialogue, consensus, and national interest, leading to the formation of the government, which in turn would meet the aspirations of the Sudanese people for a balanced representation of youth and women and different regions of the country.

The statement expressed Qatar's hope that the new government in Sudan will achieve the desired successes and that peace will prevail throughout the country as soon as possible.

The statement further affirmed the country's full support to Sudan at this historical time and stressed its firm stand in support of the unity, stability, and sovereignty of Sudan.

Earlier, Sudan's prime minister, Hamdok, had announced the formation of the first government since the military removed longtime ruler Omar al-Bashir in April after widespread protests in the country.

Prime Minister Hamdok announced the names of 18 ministers in the new Cabinet and said he would name two more at a later stage, according to Al Jazeera. 

The new cabinet comprises Sudan's first female foreign minister and a former World Bank economist. 

According to PM Hamdok, the cabinet would "immediately" go to work on the top challenges facing the transitional administration, including overhauling the ailing economy and achieving peace with armed groups.
