    Background: President Jaafar Al Nimeiry of Sudan said his country had a special role in the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) as it was a country spanning both the African and Arabian world. President Nimiery was speaking in Addis Ababa on Saturday (26 May) at the celebrations marking the OAU's tenth anniversary.

    In February last year, a prolonged civil war was brought to an end in Sudan. Sudan's recent unification follows decades of hostilities between the predominantly-African south and the mainly-Arab north.

    In his speech, President Nimeiry also spoke of the achievements of the first ten years of the OAU.
