    Background: SUDAN'S MILITARY RULER, MAJOR-GENERAL JAAFAR EL-NIMEIRY LAID THE FOUNDATION STONE OF A NEW ITALIAN BRIDGE WHICH WILL SPAN THE BLUE NILE AT KHARTOUM.

    THE ITALIAN AMBASSADOR TO THE SUDAN, SIGNOR MARIO UNGANO, WAS ALSO THERE.

    AFTER GENERAL NIMEIRY HAD ARRIVED AND THE NATIONAL ANTHEM PLAYED, VERSES WERE READ FROM THE KORAN.

    THEN GENERAL NIMEIRY MADE A SPEECH IN WHICH HE DISCUSSED THE GOOD RELATIONS BETWEEN THE SUDAN AND ITALY. IN HIS REPLY, THE ITALIAN AMBASSADOR SAID THAT THE BRIDGE WOULD ALSO SERVE AS A BRIDGE TO LINK ITALY AND THE SUDAN IN MUTUAL CO-OPERATION.

    MR. BABIKER ADADALLA, SUDAN'S CHIEF JUSTICE WAS AMONG THE AUDIENCE WHO THEN SAW GENERAL NIMEIRY LAY THE FOUNDATION STONE. THE BRIDGE IS BEING BUILT BY THE ITALIAN CONSTRUCTION COMPANY, REOOMI.
