Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has saluted President Omar al Bashir of Sudan for the tremendous initiative and role played in the peace process in neighbouring South Sudan.
“The course for the stability of South Sudan seems to be moving. This time, Bashir has played a very big role,” he said.
The President was meeting the US Ambassador to Uganda, Ms. Deborah Malac, who led a delegation that comprised, among others, the US-AFRICOM Force, Gen. Thomas Waldhauser.
During the meeting that took place yesterday at the President’s farm in Kisozi, Gomba district, the President discussed regional issues.
Mr. Museveni observed that once South Sudan political leaders comprehensively agree on the peace process, over one million South Sudan refugees would return to their mother country by next year in time to start producing food during the rainy season.
Ambassador Malac expressed the American Government’s appreciation to the Government of Uganda for the support and contribution to political stability in the region.
The Commandant of the Rapid Deployment and Capability Centre, Gen. Nikibus Lakara, attended the meeting.
