Sudanese Minister of Justice Mohamed Bushara Dousa said Saturday that the standing partnership between Sudan and China represents a model that aspires for peace and realization of peoples' interests.

"We appreciate China's stance in supporting us to establish these development projects. This is the real cooperation, this is the real human rights and this is the real development and peace," Dousa said when addressing a celebration on completion of the first phase in Al-Rusaires Dam's heightening project in Blue Nile State Saturday.

"We hope China would continue with us on this path until we achieve what our people are aspiring for in sustainable development, construction and rehabilitation," he added.

He said that the project of heightening Al-Rusaires Dam represented one of the fruits of the peace which has been achieved, calling on citizens of Blue Nile State to preserve the peace and stability and join their efforts for construction and rehabilitation.

"The proper planning and patience over huge projects is Sudan's way out from the circle of poverty to economic progress," he said.

Sudanese Minister of Electricity and Dams Osma Abdalla Mohamed el-Hassan, for his part, described Al-Rusaires Dam as the longest of its kind in the world, saying "heightening of the dam avails the country an increase in the electricity power, helps in expanding the agricultural base, increases the fish resources and achieves important projects for resettling the people affected by the dam and supporting the sustainable development in Sudan."

He added that Sudan would celebrate on May 30, 2012, the completion of the heightening of the Al-Rusaires Dam and the dam's lake would begin storing water by August the same year.

A representative of the Chinese CCMD company, which participates in implementing the project, said that the project of heightening Al-Rusaires dam constituted a model for friendly cooperative relations between China and Sudan in all fields.

He praised the standing cooperation between all the authorities participating in the implementation of the project, saying that " because of the efforts of all the participating trends, the project went well and faster and it will be completed as scheduled. "

The works of the project include heightening the concrete body of the dam from 480 meters to 490 meters above sea level, besides reinforcing the dam supports with around 155 cubic meters of concrete.
