Questions about the objectives of the Delegation of Freedom and Change from its visit to the United Arab Emirates

A delegation from the Foreign Liaison and Relations Committee of the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) travelled to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as part of its foreign tours to a number of neighbouring countries’ capitals that it had begun over the past weeks to visit South Sudan.

Freedom and Change said in a statement that the delegation would meet with the UAE leadership to discuss the completion of the final arrangements for the political process based on the Framework Political Agreement.

The United Arab Emirates played an appreciative role within the Quadripartite Mechanism, stressing that the delegation would discuss ways to strengthen and develop strategic relations between the two countries. The delegation would also meet with the Sudanese community residing in the United Arab Emirates to inform them of the latest developments in the Sudan’s political landscape.

During the visit, the delegation met Sheikh Shakhbot bin Nahyan Al Nahyan, Minister of State, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the United Arab Emirates.

A statement on freedom and change said that Shashkabout affirmed the UAE’s standing with the Sudan and its support for it in all areas, wishing stability and prosperity to the Sudan and fulfilling the aspirations of its people.

The delegation outlined the latest developments and challenges of the political process and thanked the UAE for its valuable role in facilitating this process through the quadripartite mechanism. The delegation affirmed the Alliance’s desire to strengthen bilateral relations between the two fraternal countries in the interests of the two peoples.

Political analysts see the reason for the visit as perhaps to boost the UAE’s efforts to end the dispute between Hemeti and Burhan after their mediation with Burhan failed.

Hemedti’s relationship with the emirates has been old since the storm of Assad, noting that Hemedti has a good relationship with the UAE and may not need mediation.
