of the Republic, the symbol of the dignity and sovereignty of the
Sudanese nation, in the face of the allegations of the prosecutor of the
International Criminal Court (ICC), calling on all the Sudanese people
to sent a strong message to the international community that any
decision by the ICC against the symbol of the national sovereignty would
lead to the collapse of the peace agreements and undermine the national
unity and harm stability in the African continent.

eastern Sudan. President Al-Bashir received a document of allegiance
from the people of eastern Sudan, in the presence of the walis
