Sudanese army leader declares a willingness to consider any possible measure to mitigate the people’s distress, amidst increasing bafflement and erratic excitement.
Amidst the ongoing deadly armed conflicts between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), which have resulted in the displacement of many Sudanese citizens and the death of hundreds of people, the chairman of Sudan’s Sovereign Council and commander-in-chief of the Sudanese Army, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan, expressed openness to any initiative that may help alleviate the atrocities committed by the rebel RSF. In a statement released by Sudan’s Foreign Ministry, Al-Burhan discussed the issue with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Azali Assoumani, president of the Union of the Comoros and chair of the African Union (AU). The statement highlighted the importance of maintaining stability in Sudan and facilitating the delivery of humanitarian aid through ongoing talks in the Saudi city of Jeddah. Erdogan also offered to host peace talks to help end the conflict. Amidst the looming crisis, Turkey will continue to ensure the urgent humanitarian needs of Sudanese citizens are met by cooperating with the United Nations.
