Sudanese President, Omar al-Bashir, on Thursday, accused foreign trends of conspiring against Sudan and seeking to destabilise the country.
Al-Bashir made the remarks when addressing a gathering of Sudanese Workers’ Trade Unions, Pensioners and Women Associations at the Friendship Hall in Khartoum.
He said “the external conspiracy has continued: there has been an economic siege and we have lost our main source of oil. Nevertheless, Sudan remained steadfast.”
He vowed to improve the livelihood of the Sudanese people through hike in salaries of workers, providing houses for workers and improving the situation of pensioners.
Since Dec. 19, 2018, various areas in Sudan, including Khartoum, have been witnessing protests over deteriorating economic conditions and price hikes on basic commodities.
According to government statistics, 19 people have been killed during the popular protests. (Xinhua/NAN)
