"AU and all African countries will support Sudan," said Mutharika.

He also expressed "the appreciation of Africa of the position that President al-Bashir has taken, first of all, we had a very successful elections last year, secondly the referendum took place in south Sudan under very peaceful conditions."

"There were a lot of people who thought this could not be done but the Sudanese people have shown that they can conduct credible, free and fair elections in a peaceful manner," said Mutharika.

He went on saying that he was proud of the Sudanese people, of their spirit of unity and cooperation and of their determination to move forward.

The Sudanese president, for his part, praised the AU stances towards Sudan, particularly those relating to the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) between north and south Sudan and the Darfur crisis.
