Bishop meets al-Bashir
KHARTOUM: Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has urged the protection of Christians and peaceful co-existence between Christians and Muslims in Sudan, when he met Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.
“We talked about the protection of Christians and listened carefully to his excellency as he explained the good relations, the co-habitation, even within families between Christians and Muslims,” Welby said on Sunday.
“We spoke about sanctions, and of the British policy which encourages the end of sanctions, and about the burden of debts and the need for development,” he said, adding that “at the centre of everything that we said was our deep concern, our mighty concern for the poor, the weak, the refugees and the helpless”.
