KHARTOUM (SUDANOW)- The President of the Republic, Field Marshal Omar al-Bashir, on Tuesday issued two presidential decrees, one on the General Amnesty for those rebel leaders taking part in the National Dialogue process and another on ceasefire for two months in the conflict areas.

The two decrees come as confirmation for what the president of the Republic had announced at the opening session of the General Congress of the National Dialogue on August the 20th.

In that announcement the president had said the government was ready to observe a two month ceasefire so that the dialogue would be conducted in a healthy atmosphere and in a patriotic spirit.

He also talked about General Amnesty on those carrying arms and who are genuinely desirous of taking part in the National Dialogue process.
