Sudanese Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok received a phone call from the US President’s National Security Adviser, and Hamdok expressed the Biden administration’s commitment to supporting the democratic transition in Sudan.
The US President’s National Security Adviser, Jack Sullivan, expressed the US administration’s strong and decisive stance against any attempts to obstruct or disrupt the will of the Sudanese people to achieve the slogans of freedom, peace and justice.
Hamdok and Sullivan agreed in the phone call yesterday, Friday, on the need for all parties to abide by the constitutional document, the political agreement and the Juba Agreement for peace in Sudan, and the need for the government to continue to take measures that would enhance and deepen economic stability, continue to implement the provision of security arrangements, complete the peace process, and ensure the implementation of justice and accountability.
They agreed that “the transitional government has come a long way towards achieving important historical gains for the Sudanese people at various levels, in addition to normalization with the international community and the international development community, and that any attempt to cut off that progress and development from any side will be decisively confronted by the Sudanese people and the international community.”
The contact also dealt with developments and conditions in the region, with Sullivan noting that the US Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa, Jeffrey Feltman, will travel to Sudan next week to confirm US support for the civilian-led transition process and discuss regional security challenges.
