Washington suspends aid to Sudan

U.S. Secretary of State Nate Price has announced that the United States will “suspend” hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Sudan following the announcement of the dissolution of the sovereignty of Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, chairman of the Interim Sovereign Council. Sky Arab News reports that the council and the cabinet have implemented a state of emergency in the country.

During a press conference in Bryce, Washington, DC, the suspension was part of a $ 700 million aid package, not a full package.

The spokesman added that the arrests of members of government, including Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok, undermined the process of transforming the country into a democracy with civilian rule.

Bryce stressed the need for the interim civilian government to return to work, saying “it reflects the will of the Sudanese people.”

A U.S. State Department spokesman pointed out that Washington would contact the Sudanese military “if the matter is creative.”

Pryce also said that coordination was underway with US allies and allies in the region on measures to be taken regarding the situation in Sudan.
