Yemeni mediation to release al-Turabi
Sudan-Yemen, Politics, 3/30/2001
Well-informed Yemeni sources have noted that there are mediation efforts made by the ruling Yemeni general People's Congress party chaired by President Ali Abdullah Saleh to release the leader of the Sudanese People's Congress party, Hassan al-Turabi who is currently under arrest.
These sources added that discussions were held to this effect between officials from the People's Congress party and a visiting delegation from the ruling party in Sudan led by the chairman of the Shoura commission of the Sudanese party Abdul Rahim Ali.
The Yemeni ruling party expressed fears over using the differences between the Sudanese President Hassan Omar al-Bashir and al-Turabi to undermine the unity of Sudan and called for making efforts to release al-Turabi.
The sources indicated that the mediation efforts to release al-Turabi were made difficult by al-Turabi's refusal to leave Sudan.
The sources did not confirm nor deny Yemen's readiness to receive al-Turabi if he agrees to get out of Sudan.
