Details of the Sudanese military and a swift support agreement on “direct talk” in Saudi Arabia

Today, Tuesday, the Sudanese military agreed with the Rapid Support Forces to hold “anticipated negotiations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”

Live talks

Shams al-Din al-Kabashi, a member of Sudan’s Sovereignty Council, said he would “attend direct talks in the next two days in the Saudi city of Jeddah to discuss a ceasefire in the country.”

Al-Kabashi added in a televised interview with Al-Qahera news channel: “The talks will be attended by representatives of the commander of the Rapid Support Forces, Muhammad Hamdan Taghalo.”

For his part, the UN for Sudan Ambassador Volker Peretz said military commanders and rapid support forces had agreed to send representatives to Saudi Arabia to facilitate possible talks.

Peretz told The Associated Press that the talks would initially focus on achieving a “stable and credible” ceasefire monitored by “national and international” observers.

Explaining that the logistical issues that would pave the way for the talks are still under discussion, he pointed out that “both sides still face tough challenges in keeping the ceasefire.”

“Don’t sit with Hamiti”

At the same time, Shams al-Din al-Kabashi, a member of the Sudanese Sovereignty Council, insisted that “we cannot sit with Hamidi.”

Al-Burhan and Hamidi have repeatedly agreed to a cease-fire that has not been kept well, and they last Sunday extended the last official cease-fire by 72 hours as each side blamed the other for repeated violations.

Constant fighting between the military and rapid support forces has prompted many countries to intensify efforts to evacuate their nationals or members of diplomatic missions by land, sea and air.
