Armed conflict in Sudan
The Sudanese armed forces and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have agreed to a 72-hour ceasefire, the US foreign secretary said on Monday Anthony Blinken.
Secretary of State USA he also announced that he would work with “international and regional partners” and Sudanese civilian actors to help create “a committee to oversee the negotiation, agreement and implementation of a permanent end to fighting” in Sudan, with the aim of restoring civilian rule in Sudan.
Fighting in Sudan between the RSF led by General Mohamed Dagalo and the government forces of the de facto leader of Sudan, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, has been going on since April 15. Ceasefires had been announced several times before, but they were quickly broken.
