Bashir says no Arab Spring in Sudan
Khartoum: Sudan`s President Omar al-Bashir has dismissed opposition calls for an Arab Spring style popular uprising in the African country, saying only "a burning hot summer" awaits his enemies.
"They talk of an Arab Spring, let me tell them that in Sudan we have a hot summer, a burning hot summer that burns its enemies," al-Bashir said in a live address on Wednesday while inaugurating a sugar factory in central Sudan.
In his speech, al-Bashir said that any company from a country boycotting Sudan should be denied contracts, be it in the public or private sector.
"Why should we allow them to make a profit?" he said in a live broadcast on state radio. "There shall be no dealing with any company whose country boycotts the Sudan."
