The President of the Republic said that Sudan has signed the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in order to realize Peace and to bring to an end the war that exhausted the capabilities of Sudan, explaining that it is apparent that the rulers of the State of South Sudan neither give heed to the interests of Sudan nor the interests of their own country and people.
