A delegation from the leadership of the Sudan Revolutionary Front (SRF), headed by Member of the Sovereignty Council and Chairman of the SRF, El Hadi Idris, met with the ambassadors and representatives of the Troika countries (USA, UK, and Norway) in Khartoum on Tuesday, followed by a meeting with ambassadors of the European Union (EU) today. The SRF presented a detailed explanation of the political initiative they propose as the correct way out of the Sudanese crisis.
The Troika representatives welcomed the initiative and praised the role of the RSF and its quest to reach a comprehensive political settlement. RSF spokesman Osama Saeed said in a statement on Monday that the delegation asked the Troika representatives to urge their countries to continue supporting Sudan, and to continue to provide aid to the Sudanese people.
The EU mission in Sudan also affirmed its support for the initiative, and welcomed all constructive efforts to solve it. The Head of the European Union Mission in Sudan, Robert van den Dool , said in a statement to the official Sudan News Agency (SUNA) today, after meeting with the SRF delegation, that the European Union is always supportive of Sudan in the process of democratic transition, indicating that the EU will continue its dialogue with all Sudanese parties.
Member of the Presidential Council of the SRF, Mustafa Tanbour, said that the EU expressed its readiness and desire to play the role of facilitator between Sudanese parties.
The Head of Sudan’s Sovereignty Council, and de facto head of state General Abdelfattah El Burhan, held talks with the delegation of ambassadors of the Troika countries (the USA, the UK, and Norway) in Khartoum last week, focusing on the current political crisis and ways to address it.
