Following a US initiative in Sudan’s destabilized civil war, a 72-hour ceasefire has been agreed upon. The cease-fire that began yesterday will last through tomorrow. Both parties have agreed to a ceasefire in the hostilities between the Army (SAF) and the Paramilitary Forces (RSF), according to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken. However, there have been reports of ceasefire violations in a number of locations, including Khartoum and Omdurman.
The US is attempting to bring SAF commander Abdel Fattah al-Barhan and RSF leader Mohammad Hamdan Dagalo to Saudi Arabia for peace negotiations with the aid of Saudi Arabia and others.
A 72-hour ceasefire that was announced last week to celebrate Eid ul-Fitr was broken, yet fighting nonetheless went on. Refugees from Sudan continue to enter nearby nations like Egypt, Chad, and South Sudan, where they face a humanitarian crisis due to a lack of resources like food, energy, or medical care.
The evacuation of citizens by foreign nations is in full swing. The US, Canada, and France are just a few of the nations who have shut down their embassies. The issue has been made worse by the cessation of humanitarian deliveries, particularly food, by nonprofit organizations.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is worried that extremists control Sudan’s main public laboratory in the meanwhile. Numerous pathogens, including measles and polio, have been sampled. The UN Security Council convened and discussed Sudan’s position.
Secretary General Antonio Guterres convened a Security Council meeting to evaluate the situation in Sudan and make every effort to bring about peace. Members of the Security Council were exhorted by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to work tirelessly for world peace.
