Arab League Secretary General Esmat Abdel-Meguid assured the league's support and solidarity with Sudan for lifting the imposed sanction since 1996, especially when Sudan has fulfilled all its commitments according to the Security Council's resolution related to the issue, reported Wednesday. 

His remarks came during a telephone call with Sudanese President Omar Bashir Wednesday. 

Abdel-Meguid hailed the move of the UN Arab group in New York that strongly supports Sudan's request to end the sanctions - expressing his hope that the Security Council will lift up the imposed sanctions as soon as possible, the agency added. 

Abdel-Meguid also praised the "positive efforts exerted by Sudanese government to rectify the conflict in its relations with its neighboring countries on the African and Arab levels," according to the agency -
