He added: “We confirm we will continue our communication with all political and social powers without excluding anyone, including those who are armed, for a national dialogue which will bring a solution to all the issues.”


Bashir has well been facing pressure from the international community over gross human rights abuses he perpetuated in Darfur.


It’s feared this move could be aimed at overhauling his blood-tainted image as he plans to retire from active service at the end of his presidential term.

Bashir, who has since been indicted by ICC for war crimes, last month announced intentions to retire in 2015.


Reports have indicated the Sudan strongman was considering giving way to young leaders following deterioration in his health.


In November 2012, Bashir underwent surgery at King Faisal’s Hospital in Riyadth, Saudi Arabia.


Khartoum said then that was “a normal medical review connected with an infection in his throat.”


South Sudan and thousands of Sudan opposition leaders have been victims of Bashir’s repressive regime.


During riots in Khartoum last year, hundreds of students were jailed without trial, according to human rights activists.
