Khartoum -- The government's stance on the Gulf crisis and agreements signed of the Grand Renaissance Dam are fixed and no new developments in this regard, Ahmed Bilal

Osman, the Minister of Information has said. 
In a statement, the Minister affirmed Sudan's support to Kuwait's mediation in the Gulf crisis, adding the government is working with brother Arabs and parties to the crisis, international partners to overcome this crisis and restore unity among Gulf States.
The statement pointed to Al-Bashir's tour to Kuwait and the UAE to push Arab efforts to contain the crisis.
