KHARTOUM, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) — Sudan was a real partner for the Libyan revolution with its military, political and humanitarian support, visiting Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) Chairman Mustafa Abdul-Jalil said here on Friday.

“We appreciate the Sudanese stance,” Abdul-Jalil said when addressing the general conference of Sudan’s ruling National Congress Party (NCP) here on Friday.

“Hadn’t there been the Sudanese military assistance, the Libyan city of Kufra wouldn’t have been liberated from the hands of ( former leader Muammar) Gaddafi’s forces,” Abdul-Jalil said.

Libya’s new rulers announced the country’s liberation from Gaddafi’s 42-year rule in late October, days after the capture and death of the former leader who had been on the run since he and his family members and close aides were driven out of the Libyan capital in August.

Abdul-Jalil arrived in Khartoum on Friday for a two-day visit, during which he is expected to meet Sudanese President Omar al- Bashir and hold talks with Sudanese First Vice-President Ali Osman Mohamed Taha.
