Excerpts from @DrWorkneh’s intervention at the @UN Security Council meeting on the situation in #Sudan today:

“IGAD welcomes the signing of an “Agreement on Short-Term Ceasefire and Humanitarian Arrangements in Sudan” between representatives of Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces on 20th May 2023 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, brokered by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States of America. […]

Besides the people of Sudan, neighboring countries are also feeling the brunt of the war as they are hosting thousands of refugees, and these are countries who are either emerging out of conflicts or are facing serious economic and humanitarian crisis themselves. […]

On 17th and 18th May, I was in Juba, South Sudan, to encourage H.E. President Salva Kiir on his commitment to lead IGAD’s efforts to resolve the crisis in Sudan and also exchange views on next steps to be taken to silence the guns in Sudan. I call on the international community to support and complement these efforts in a coordinated manner.[…]

Let’s put our heads and hands together to support the Sudanese people’s quest for durable peace and democracy.”
