Sudan Junta Negotiating with Ousted Prime Minister

Sudanese army officials are still in negotiations with the prime minister ousted in a coup last week over an agreement that could yield his return back to offices, reports said on Wednesday.

The new report follows contradicts earlier viral news that the PM, Abdalla Hamdok, had agreed to return to lead a government.

Hamdok has been under house arrest since General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan toppled his government in the coup which derailed a transition towards civilian rule and led Western donors to freeze aid to Sudan.

A mediation effort has been going on for several days in an attempt to reach a negotiated solution to the crisis.

Reports claimed no agreement had been reached between Hamdok and military leaders and talks were still going on.

Earlier, the Saudi-owned al Arabiya TV, quoting unnamed sources, said Hamdok had agreed to return to lead a government.

According to al Hadath TV, a media outlet affiliated with al Arabiya, Hamdok wants political detainees released as a condition of leading a government.

Sources who met with Hamdok last week said he was seeking the reversal of the coup and the release of detainees before the possibility of further talks.
