Sudan and the U.S. have agreed on a four-point agenda to resolve the North African country’s political crisis.
According to the Sudanese Sovereign Council, the development came after US Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Molly Phee and the US special envoy for the Horn of Africa, David Satterfiel met with the head of the Sovereign Council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan.
The four-point plan include the commencement of an inclusive dialogue between all Sudanese political parties in order to reach a national consensus to resolve the crisis, the formation of a civilian-led government, amendments to the transitional constitution and the conducting of free and fair elections by the end of the transitional period.
The US embassy in Khartoum said the two diplomats warned that Washington would impose punitive measures on those who obstruct the realization of the agreed points.
They also underscored that the US will not resume paused assistance to the Sudanese government “absent and end to violence and a restoration of a civilian-led government that reflects the will of the people of Sudan.
The high-level US delegation has engaged in wide consultation with Sudanese stakeholders since Wednesday amid deep tensions and continued protests in the capital Khartoum and other states.
